Grosse Pointe Farms Reviews

It’s a very safe community with great education and a great location. Lots of diverse restaurants, and gorgeous houses. Grosse Pointe has many different groups of people and is very welcoming to anyone. It’s very diverse in many ways. There are many people of many different political beliefs, races, religions, and social classes. I always feel safe walking the streets at night and feel that any stranger I meet will be kind, helpful, and welcoming. There is such a small town feel, having no fast food or strip malls, but both of those things are close by. I have loved growing up here and most definitely want to come back to raise by children here.

My hometown is nice. Very safe, schools are phenomenal, and the people are friendly. The parks are great, too!
As a teenager, I think Grosse Pointe Farms is great! The only downside in my opinion is other people's political beliefs. I've grown up in a split household, so I've grown to make my own political choices. For others, that's not the case. The only thing I wish for is that everyone makes their own choices and doesn't just follow their parents beliefs because they think their parents are always right.
