I love Chesterfield (Cfield), I was originally born in St. Clair Shores, but I moved early in my childhood to Chesterfield. Chesterfield is all you really need in a town. Theres nice people everywhere, restaurants in every direction so you don't have to go far for a bite! Also, there's a Meijer right in the middle of Chesterfield, which is a great place to obtain new, fresh produce, or other products.

I love living in chesterfield. It's such a beautiful city! I think that our community could come together more so that we can make this community more social. We could also start creating traditions that our community can look forward to.
Chesterfield Township is a place that has it all. There are built up parts of town or areas in the wide open free from the hussle and bussle. It's generally quiet and safe place to live, but has all the necessary thing youd desire in a township and more. I've lived here my whole life, and can truly say Chesterfield is a great place to live. I hope to raise children of my own in Chesterfield in the future. I think it is the perfect place for a family to live and prosper.
