"Northville – Full of Festivals"

I just love Northville. I worked in the city for a short time, but it has always been a place I’ve visited frequently. The city is more of a village, with Victorian architecture and the cutest downtown area you will ever see. These are streets that are all a bustle, especially on the weekend. Everyone knows everyone and they love to support the local stores and restaurants.

There is always something going on in this city, so despite its quiet atmosphere it traditionally offers, parking and traffic can get a little congested. The city hosts annual festivals, even in the winter! The Northville Christmas Parade is wonderful, there are concerts in the summer and they have one of the best Farmer’s Markets around.

If you have a family, I can’t think of a better place to live. It is safe, the schools are fantastic, community is friendly and there are a few nice parks. Any night of the week, you can find locals as well as visitors from surrounding cities at Ginitti’s Hole-in-the-Wall, Table 5 or Deadwood Bar & Grill, where you will find the best chocolate chip cookies you will ever eat. Seriously, they make them to order, so tell your server ahead of time if you will want them, or you will be waiting a while for dessert. Their outdoor patio is the place to be all summer.
