"Keego Harbor – Surprisingly Friendly"

Keego Harbor is really in a fantastic central location. It is a small city with a ton of waterfront property on Cass Lake, and it is minutes away from West Bloomfield Twp., Waterford and Pontiac. If you don’t mind a 20 to 30 minute commute, you can also find endless opportunities for jobs, entertainment and shopping in larger cities, including Sterling Heights, Royal Oak, Bloomfield Hills and Farmington Hills.

Although Keego Harbor seems as though it is a Caucasian community, there is actually a nice mix of races here. Residents are mainly professional but it is not a stuffy or overly expensive city by any means. There is a nice blend of singles, families, retirees and even students here. The city is extremely safe and there hasn’t been a murder in well over a decade!

The downside is you won’t find public transportation unless you call a cab and if there is an emergency, you are going to a hospital in Pontiac; not necessarily the most desirable option.

If you are a college student or if you have kids getting ready to attend, you couldn’t pick a better city to live in. There are about seven colleges and universities all within about 20 minutes. If you are yearning to dance at a club, there are plenty of clubs in downtown Pontiac, just watch your back in the parking lot and make sure that you don’t go on a teen night! There are plenty of great restaurants and bars right in Keego Harbor or down the road, including Lodge at Orchard Lake, Harbor Steak House and Jeremy Restaurant and Bar.
