"Maybee – Always a Bonfire Somewhere"

Maybee – Always a Bonfire Somewhere

I lived in Monroe for quite some time, and what I found was that there always seemed to be a bonfire going on in Maybee. There are only about 500 people who live in Maybee so you will end up knowing nearly everyone, and if you have a barbeque, plan for unexpected guests, it’s just that type of neighborly place.

Maybee is where you live if you make a little more money than the average American and you can afford a higher house payment. Monroe is right up the road if you are looking for a bigger selection of bars, restaurants, gyms, tanning salons and shopping, but there is a post office and Independent Dairy Mart in the city. You will find that the Little Brown Jug is the place to go for food and drinks; I even drove there to hang out quite a few times when I lived in Monroe.

Even though Maybee has a small population, depending on where you live, residents either attend Monroe Public Schools or Dundee Community Schools. If had to choose one, I would pick Dundee; they are smaller so students get more attention. This is a very safe area. It is also great for college students as Monroe County Community College is only 10 minutes away or you can take your pick between University of Toledo, Eastern Michigan University and University of Michigan, which are all under a 25-minute drive.
  • Safe
  • Friendly community
  • Great location
  • Not much for shopping of fine-dining restaurants
