I have lived in Novi my whole life and love it! It is a fairly diverse city with lots of fun for all ages lots of shopping, has a great movie theater, dog park, kid attractions like airtime, bars and tons more. The schools are fantastic with real knowledgable teachers always willing to help as well as have fun learning too. Novi has fun deals around town with food and shopping and is always looking to continue this thriving city. The police do a great job watching over the city.

Great public school system. Nice neighborhoods. Some of the communities even have public pools. Diverse community, rich in many cultures. Close to lots of shopping whether it's a mall or something smaller it's all here. Parks and rec does a good job with lots of events for families and kids. Small lake accessible to all residents. Great place to live!
The people in general here are pretty nice! The teenagers, however, are a bit of a different story. Don't get me wrong, there are really nice kids out there, but some kids are just extremely arrogant and annoying and nosy and snotty and spoiled and... a lot of other things. It's crazy how a 16-year-old would act in a neighborhood of little kids... But other than that, it's pretty nice here.
