I live on a college campus in Ann Arbor and the area is great. There are seemingly endless choices of things to do and places to go, and every time you walk around town you notice something new. The campus is great and the area surrounding the campus is just as beautiful and enjoyable.

Growing up in the neighboring city of East Grand Rapids, there is a very tight-knit sense of community. East is a small city of about 10,000, compared to Grand Rapids' nearly 200,000. Families tend to stay in East for a very long time. With only one middle school and one high school with small class sizes, students and families know one another and the sense of community is very strong. It is extremely pet and family friendly. The community is extremely engaged in its events, such as high school sports, art festivals, and food festivals.

I love Troy, Michigan. There are great shopping centers and malls around this city. Downtown Rochester and Birmingham are so close to Troy, which is wonderful. I love the Troy nature center, lovely to walk on a nice day. Troy is a very safe city which is important to me. New businesses go up all the time, lots of food options also. Overall I think Troy is one of the best suburbs in American. I would love to raise a family here one day.

I love living in Farmington Hills, MI! The people here are so friendly and education driven! I went to Farmington High School my senior year of high school and I loved it way better than my previous school. The students there seemed more education driven and actually wanted to learn. They all were really intelligent and talented students.
