Introduction:

Royal Oak, Michigan is a small town with the advantages of a big city.  Nestled about twenty miles north of Detroit, the city has a deep history and its downtown has grown into one of the hottest places to live in or be seen.

It is fitting that the city is named after a tree, for it is known as the “City of Trees” for all of the trees within its city limits.  Royal Oak has received the National Arbor Day Foundation “Tree City USA” award each year since 1976.

The small city has many great things to do and see.  There are multiple art galleries/shops, movie and stage theaters, a farmers’ market, and a world-renowned zoo to name a few.  Residents of Royal Oak also enjoy the proximity to Detroit and the other suburbs which are home to the four major sports teams as well as a plethora of cultural venues such as the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Opera House and the Fox and Fisher Theaters.

Royal Oak – a great small town with big city benefits!
