Ferndale / Royal Oak / Berkley / Pleasant Ridge


FERNDALE
There aren't many Metro Detroit intersections more happening than Woodward and Nine Mile. The once-sleepy hamlet of Ferndale has become the arbiter of hip in Metro Detroit. Great shopping, dining and people-watching meet affordable housing a mere jump away from Detroit and Royal Oak. Location, location, location.

ROYAL OAK
Many cities have Main Streets, but everyone in Metro Detroit finds their way to Royal Oak's. Its multitude of dining options and nightspots lure in the crowds around the clock, but the city's charming bungalows, high-end lofts and townhouses, as well as plentiful parks, are what make it a premier residential borough.

BERKLEY
From its businesses along Woodward and unique downtown shopping and nightlife, to its quiet, cozy neighborhoods and nine community parks, this little community has earned a "Cool City" designation from the state.

PLEASANT RIDGE
Pleasant Ridge is known for its beautiful historic homes, tree-lined streets, and active citizens. This small, picturesque community separates Ferndale from Royal Oak along the Woodward corridor and is a world unto itself.
