Rating 3.91 out of 5 74 reviews
Medium-sized town. lacks in diversity. more conservative than liberal, has very nice safe neighborhoods. As a younger person, the town lacks in things to do to keep life interesting.
I love Woodhaven. I have lived here for all 18 years of my life. It may be a smaller town just south of Detroit but it has everything you may need. Countless stores and restaurants, great food all over the place, the people are so friendly where ever you go, and it is one of the safer places in all of the Downriver Area. There is so much to love about Woodhaven and it literally has something for everyone.
I like the fact that everything is around here that you need. Grocery stores, shopping, EVERYTHING! Great schools, nice parks, I just love it out here!
Living in a small suburb you begin to feel like and outsider in your own town, and for me the more I grow I begin to have an urge to explore and meet new people, but since not everyone feel the same and some just want to settle down in a simple town, Woodhaven has those qualities to achieve this goal. You never feel like you're alone in this town, everyone treats everyone kindly because no one holds portrays harsh feelings to anyone here.
Woodhaven is a wonderful city that is clean and provides many community activities. The community comes together for holidays and other events throughout the year. It had wonderful schools and many places included within.
Very nice city, always has fun activities going on and has a very outgoing, supportive community. Works hard to keep things clean and new. The majority of people are all very nice. School district is AMAZING!!! Fantastic environment, academics, and sports.
I'd like to see Woodhaven downtown improve. It's rather too small for a downtown setting. It takes less than a minute to drive through it. Although the city is fast-growing and becoming more populated. I hope this brings more job
Great town to do stuff in. No matter what direction there's always something to drive to whether its an activity or to grab something to eat.
It's a pretty average suburban town with an above average high school. Plenty of parks and restaurants nearby
Woodhaven has lots of good restaurants and stores to shop at, the only issue is the roads are not the best.
There are many places to go with family and friends. It's also close to nearby places around Detroit area.
It's a great town. Many amenities. It has a beautiful park along Hall Road complete with baseball diamonds, football field, sledding hill, skate park , dog park, playscapes galore and a walking trail with workout equipment along the path.
Being a part of Wayne County is the best thing that can happen to a person. You live close enough to a "controversial" big city, where you can see danger and the real world, but you can also see local government actual fixing peoples lives. Detroit is bringing new jobs and culture back to the " dangerous" "dead" city. You can drive thirty minutes to go to the DIA, to see some semi-poor sports team, or go to the theatre district and catch a brilliant musical, then go back to Woodhaven and eat at a "Mom n Pops" diner.
I loved living in Woodhaven. I lived on the south east end, within the Gibraltar School District (nicer and low crime rate, as compared to other areas of Woodhaven). The neighborhood I lived in was well kept and the people are friendly. There are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. There's a movie theater down the street. I made the mistake of moving away for a year and a half, and I can't wait to move back.
There's not much to do around here, so I'd like more to do, but I grew up here and don't want to leave.
I love living in Woodhaven. My only complaint would be the train that runs over Van Horn, Allen and Fort street. There are plenty of areas to go shopping, and lots of restaurants in the area as well. Everyone has been very friendly that I've encountered. I like that there are many options for me to go shopping at. There's a Target, Meijer and WalMart all within the same area. Other smaller stores make it convenient to find what you're looking for. Also the freeway is close by making the commute to other cities easy and convenient. All the surrounding cities are nice as well. I feel very safe in this city, never worry about going out at night. The schools look very nice. Every where I've gone it seems like they're always hiring with allows for more opportunities for people. There are a lot of healthy places to get food, Tropical Smoothie, and a farmers market down the street. Woodhaven is in general a great city.
Woodhaven has been a great place to live and grow up in. The community is great and the district is perfect! Woodhaven is also in the middle of everything downriver and nothing takes more than 15 minutes to get too!
