"Romeo – The Birthplace of Kid Rock"

You might feel like you are out in the middle of nowhere, but basically, that’s because you are! People move to Romeo to escape the noise of the city and constant traffic congestion. This is a village where you are nearly guaranteed to find a bonfire somewhere from early spring through late fall, and chances are good, no one will care if you just pop in without an invitation.

Most homes in Romeo are on fairly large lots, if not a nice piece of land, and nearly everyone has a garden. This is a small community, less than 4,000 residents, with over 92 percent being Caucasian. There are a ton of married couples and families here but with homes being so spread out, it is not like a traditional neighborhood where kids can simply walk out the door and meet up with their friends. The school district is small with intimate classrooms so lack of undivided attention is not a concern.

Don’t look for nightclubs here because you won’t find them. You will enjoy neighborhood bars and family-owned restaurants though. A few favorites include Younger’s Irish Tavern, Main Street Bar & Grill and Thee Office Pub and Cookery. Both Shelby Township and Rochester Hills are nearby if you are looking for a trendier option.

Aside from being the birthplace to Kid Rock, Romeo is known for two other things. First, the Peach Festival takes place annually on Labor Day Weekend where there is a parade, craft show, car show and events downtown. Second, you better love Halloween if you move to Romeo. Elaborate decorations adorn Tilson Street and thousands trick-or-treat here. There’s always one of the best haunted houses in all of the Detroit area over here too!
