    Brownstown Charter Township Reviews

    The Charter Township of Brownstown ~ where the future looks brighter. Brownstown is a small township on the outlying suburbs of Detroit. This area has a small town country feel while still building up to accommodate the growing population in the area. There is plenty of shopping nearby with some of the major retailers located close together. The area still has protected wetlands is how it keeps it's country feel while still becoming a growing and active community. It is located between two nearby Metroparks for anyone who likes the outdoors and offers plenty of biking and hiking trails throughout. The city that is growing and still has small town heart.
    Review Brownstown Charter Township
    The area I live in is decent; however, it is not anything spectacular. There are not a lot of fun activities to engage in and there are not a lot of beautiful parks to visit. The school district is a really good one and there is nothing bad to say about it. I enjoy living here, however, I would not mind moving to a prettier, more fun area.
    The community as a whole has gotten better the longer I've lived here. There are a lot more restaurants/stores that are opening, the high school is being renovated which I believe, once it's done, will make it one of the best high schools in the state.
