I've written a few posts and even created a video about amenities in Troy like churches and school districts. In this post I thought I'd touch on some of the other fun things that Troy has to offer. After all, many of these items really make it worth owning a Troy Michigan home.
Anyone who has driven down Troy's Big Beaver corridor is familiar with the spectacular sight of Somerset Mall. The mall stretches across Big Beaver and is connected by an elevated walkway that connects the North and South sections. In addition to its upscale anchor stores (Nieman Markus, Saks, Macy's, and Nordstrom), Somerset's smaller stores undoubtedly combine to make up the highest-end shopping available in Michigan.
If you're looking to buy a home or a condo in an area that has a lot of entertainment value to it, Troy Michigan is a great place to start.
