Five Things That Set Royal Oak, MI Apart

Michigan boasts some of the most beautiful communities, townships, and cities. Top among these is Royal Oak, a suburb of Detroit. It is the eighth-largest city in Oakland County by size with about 60,000 residents, and it has a rich heritage dating back to 1819 when farmers first settled here. For anyone who wants to become a part of the Royal Oak community, here are some things that set the city apart.

Royal Oak boasts an eclectic mix of quiet, tree-lined neighborhoods and a vibrant downtown, allowing residents to enjoy the serenity of the suburbs and the activity of a city.


The location of Royal Oak allows residents to go anywhere in Metro Detroit in less than an hour—often just 20 minutes. The suburb is a few miles north of Detroit, just off of Interstate 75. There are different ways to get to Metro Detroit using I-75, I-696, or Woodward Avenue.

Parks and Recreation
