Moving to SE Michigan - Advice?

Hey everybody.

I'm graduating this spring and have accepted a full time job in Dearborn starting this September. I'll be moving from Indianapolis to somewhere surrounding Dearborn in late July / early August. I was wondering if you all could supply some local input into the surrounding areas?

I lived in Dearborn last summer and decided it's really not the type of area I'm interested in. I'm willing to commute up to 45 minutes. Really looking for a younger crowd (I'm 22) with plenty of restaurants and bars. I've heard Royal Oak is a nice area but can be a bit expensive, however price is not really a huge factor. I would like to rent an apartment or loft for the first year with the opportunity to buy a house later.

Thanks guys

So you're interested in bars and restaurants? You're in luck because that is the only thing suburban Detroit has to offer.

Royal Oak sounds like your best bet. Bloomfield, Novi, Farmington are comparable suburbs.

Agree with these...Plymouth is also a nicer area, but not a huge, close enough to Novi though and not too far from dearborn.

Check out Ferndale. Better bar scene than Royal Oak and less expensive.

Woodhaven is nice too. Little more of a commute, but the community is laid back and the rent is cheap.
