"Mount Clemens – Easily One of My Least Favorite Places"

Why anyone would want to live in Mt. Clemens is beyond me. Even when I was in high school many years ago, this is where we would hang out and think we were cool. It was a rough city then and it’s far worse now. Quite honestly, I think I would rather walk the streets of Detroit alone than Mt. Clemens, and that’s not saying much.

Sure there’s a few nice neighborhoods here and there, but what good is a nice house if you are always wondering if it is going to get broken into? The crime rate is ridiculous, and this place is always in the news. Fortunately, there are plenty of hospitals in and around the city; you might need them.

As for raising a family here, I personally would not want my children going to these schools. About the only plus size is that there is public transportation running through the city, which is more than what most Michigan cities have to offer.

Mt. Clemens does offer one thing though, a lot of nightclubs. Being an ex-bartender, I have frequented these clubs on occasion and had a good time. Be warned though, every night is not a good night! I only go if there are special events or hosted parties. Other than that, I wouldn’t waste my time. A few that usually have something going on include Emerald Theatre, The Bank (especially in the summer) and Johnny G’s, which is more of a pub than anything.
  • An abundance of bars, clubs and restaurants
  • Not safe
  • Poor school district
