This is a very expensive neighborhood, but there is always something going on! I have never seen a town so busy during the summer and fall months. They are also VERY good about cleaning up after a bad snow storm and making sure the community is safe. It's a huge up and coming area for new and growing families.

Overall, Northville/South Lyon is a great place. There are good and bad pockets, a lot of "old school" ways of thinking, but I love the small town fill. The real estate market is overpriced, and the building is getting out of control, but the school system is phenomenal!
I love the peacefulness and overall atmosphere of Northville. Everyone is very kind and the environment looks great! The schools are fantastic, and there is honestly very little I would want changed about Northville.
