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.

I have lived in Macomb Township for all 18 years of my life. It has provided me with a wonderful living environment, amazing friends, and an overall great atmosphere to grow up in. I really could not imagine myself growing up anywhere else. I am beyond thankful to my parents for picking a great place to raise a family and to be involved in such a great city and community. The schools around here are known for their successes and work hard to make sure that it is a safe and nurturing place to learn.
