I have lived in Plymouth for the better part of 20 years. I have watched many changes, and growth come to the community. Plymouth is a safe place, with ample ammenities, and the coziest little town. Kellog Park in the center of town offers many attractions to residents such as Art in the Park, Ice Fest, music on Thursdays, trick or treating for kids, and Santa for kids just to name a few. The always seasonly decorated park is surrounded by many shops, boutiques, and restaurants that fill at night and on the weekends. While the nightlife options are rather limited, you are close enough to the freeways to head out to enjoy cities like Detroit, Ann Arbor, Novi, Royal Oak and Ferndale. I find that to be one of the biggest perks myself. If you were looking for a new community, I would absolutely recommend Plymouth, Michigan!

The city of Plymouth has provided me with a variety of opportunities and has allowed me to grow as a person over the course of my teenage years. Due to Plymouth´s small population, it is easy to develop long-lasting friendships, as well as connections with the community as a whole. Personally, I love the downtown area because of how it is structured, and because of it´s welcoming atmosphere. Many teens, as well as young adults, who are interested in the arts, have been provided with The Plymouth PARC, which is a community building that can be used for a multitude of purposes. This community center offers concerts, theatre productions, and art festivals to the public, which has helped immensely with bringing the community together. Plymouth is a town that not only forces people to step outside of their comfort zones, but it is also a community that strives to maintain collectivism by allowing its members to find ways to feel connected with the world around them.
I moved to Plymouth about two months ago. Since then I've been exploring the area. The people are wonderful! The downtown area is super cute, with a little park right at the center. They have events every week whether it be performers or sidewalk sales or the farmers market, there's always something local going on.
