Macomb Township Reviews

Macomb County, in my opinion, is an average city. There are countless stores and restaurants and about 45 minutes away from Detroit. However, there is not much entertainment offered and almost every restaurant is a franchise. Macomb is not by any means a horrible city, but offers nothing special.

There's so much to do here! There's so many places to eat and explore. However, the traffic can be terrible.
I would choose to live here again when I have kids. It's a great family neighborhood! While in my 20's, I can't see myself wanting to live here because, again, it is mostly families and so it's very quiet at night. Before moving to Macomb, I lived in San Diego. I would say that although San Diego is a beautiful place to live, living in Macomb is much more practical, as a college student.
