The Plymouth/Plymouth Township Community


Picture of Plymouth City Hall Adjectives that have been used to describe Plymouth include: charming, quaint, Old World, cultural, and festive. It is a city of pleasant contradictions. A city with its own symphony orchestra and a wealth of thriving businesses. A city where old-fashioned carriage rides and tree-lined streets are commonplace. Plymouth could be the set for a New England movie depicting a pretty, small town. The shops are one-of-a-kind and range from country crafts to contemporary. Whatever your pleasure, Plymouth's commitment to total community involvement results in activities available for residents of all ages.

Strongly supported by business, Plymouth is also the home of many modern industrial and corporate headquarters. At the crossroads of I-96, M-14, and I-275, Plymouth is in the midst of an area of prime commercial and industrial growth. Major expressways, convenient public and private airports and a ready availability of railway services make the community easily accessible to and from Detroit and the nation.

There is a wide variety of housing in the Plymouth community. There are starter homes, older restored homes, custom built homes, luxurious homes nestled in the heart of downtown, and tree-lined cozy neighborhoods. There are comfortable, fashionable condominiums and beautiful homes in sprawling subdivisions that speckle wooded hillsides in the township. For renters, the choice is just as varied.

Plymouth's residents and many visitors enjoy the community's fine shopping and restaurants, Hines and Kellogg parks, golf, skating, water sports, bike trails, the Ice Sculpture Spectacular and Fall Festival, art fairs, and much, much, more. There truly is no place like Plymouth.
