"South Lyon – Home to Pumpkinfest"

The first time I was introduced to South Lyon was for Pumpkinfest, a festival that takes place every October. You don’t have to have kids to enjoy it either. There is plenty of food, live entertainment, a craft show, dog show and of course, a pumpkin contest. It’s really a nice way to spend a day. If you live in South Lyon, this is about the only time you will feel overwhelmed with traffic.

Residents are friendly, typically make above average income and the houses are really nice. The location is perfect, because you can work and enjoy all the amenities in Brighton, Novi, Wixom and Milford, which happens to be a city that is booming with growth. The school district is fantastic and the city is safe.

I personally love this area because there is a lot to do outside. There are a ton of golf courses and gorgeous parks in the city and nearby, including Huron Meadows Metro Park. If you have a dog, there is a nice dog park in Wixom at Lyon Oaks. They have “wolf” day on Friday’s at 1 pm where everyone brings their Huskies and Malamutes. Of course, other dogs are welcome as well!

If you are looking for an exceptionally nice neighborhood that is not overdone or so rich that it’s stuffy, South Lyon offers some pretty friendly communities.
