It is great! The majority of Macomb is filled with subdivisions and food places which makes going out kind of difficult but there are so many places surrounding it and it is only about an hour out from everything which is not far at all which makes it the perfect cozy place to live. Even though it is majorly filled with houses and people, it doesn’t feel crowded and it feels as if there is still so much more room to fit new people. All the roads in macomb have pretty fast speed limits so you are able to get around pretty quickly and the traffic is not too bad, there are many traffic circles.

Also, I have noticed a great deal of job opportunities for all ages in this area. Lots of businesses are looking for helpful hands! Overall, this is a great place to live and raise a family. The schools here are great, there is tons to do, and the people are so friendly!
I absolutely love living in Macomb County. There are amazing opportunities school and occupation wise and even things to do outside of a profession. The community is diverse and is welcoming towards everyone. When I am in the county, I can easily find something to do and easily meet new people. Public schools are very safe in the county and graduating from two myself, I would reccomend them to anyone searching for schools. Every year Macomb grows more and more in population, economically, and developes new infrastructure. I would 100% recommend Macomb to anyone searching for a safe, comfortable, stable, home environment.
