"Pleasant Ridge – A Haven for Same Sex Couples"

Pleasant Ridge ranks seventh in the nation for same sex couples, but this is a family city as well. In fact, about 30 percent of the residents here have children, and nearly everyone seems to be making a good living. Pleasant Ridge is perfect for professionals, hard-working entrepreneurs and even successful artists. This is the kind of city where you can be yourself without being judged by your neighbors or complete strangers. Folks are just sort of laid back and surprisingly accepting here.

This city is an outstanding location to commute to Royal Oak, Ferndale, Clawson, Troy, Madison Heights or even into Detroit. Since it is so centrally located, you will never have a hard time finding restaurants, bars, nightclubs and shopping. However, you don’t have to go too far because there’s some great selections right in your backyard, including Mae’s, Cork Wine Pub and the Fly Trap Restaurant.

Also, since Pleasant Ridge is surrounded with such great cities, there are endless places to go and things to see, including the Detroit Zoo in Royal Oak and a Farmers Market where you will get fresh organic produce. You will also enjoy a front row seat to the Woodward Dream Cruise every August. Be warned though, as exciting as the Dream Cruise is, you may as well forget about traveling any main roads for a week.
