There're plenty of small businesses owned by locals, which is wonderful! The atmosphere is great year-round, but especially during summer while the town preps for the Woodward Dream Cruise. It's small, but close enough to bigger towns so that you're never too far from finding something new to do. That being said, it seems to be lacking in "hot spots" to hang out which almost forces a lot of teenage business away. Hopefully, that will change in the future. There are a lot of stores that have been opening or getting renovated so the future looks bright for the area!
Berkley is a wonderful city to live in. It has an excellent school district that has been in Newsweek for the past 7 years as being one of the top school districts in the country. It has a wonderful business district and the housing market has increased dramatically over the last few years. People are flocking to Berkley!
I moved to Berkley 4 years ago. I absolutely love the area, lots of new young first time home owners moving in. A very tight nit community!
