Macomb Township Reviews

I have lived in Macomb for 14 years. Macomb is a very welcoming place with many stores and unique restaurants. Although it has gotten more and more crowded in the past few years, it is nice to see that people are still smiling and making ways to be kind and considerate of those around them. Recently, the roads have been getting better and better which makes driving more efficient and a lot safer, and in turn people are a lot happier and more calm on the road. It would be a great advantage for all if there were reflectors on the road, especially Hall Road because it would be a lot easier to see where the lanes are. But overall the roads are great and Macomb is a very nice and friendly place to live.

Macomb Township offers a good mix between urban and rural settings, but it is slowly becoming more developed. Additionally, Macomb Township does not offer too much in the way of recreation. There are a few parks and fun attractions, but days out are relatively limited - one can only go to Barrymore's or Partridge Creek so many times before growing tired of the same scenes. On a more positive note, Macomb Township boasts a vast array of restaurants, eateries, and bars. There are enough that citizens of any preference or persuasion can happily find a place to go. Overall, Macomb Township is a safe and family-friendly city that is developing steadily and attracting new citizens and employees yearly.
Macomb Township, MI offers affordable living and easy access to shopping malls, churches, schools and libraries. There are plenty of diverse restaurants to choose from, ranging from fast food to elegant dining options.

Macomb is home to Blue Ribbon public schools as well as several private schools. For the most part, Macomb neighborhoods are quiet and friendly with many neighborhood parks for sports activities and child play. We even have our own Macomb Recreation Center.
