Regardless of whether you live alone or have a family with young children to think of, a low crime rate is an attractive feature to any homebuyer.

Since nobody wants to live in an area that doesn’t have very much to do or is far away from simple things like grocery stores, AreaVibes takes that into consideration when they’re making their lists. The Amenities score for each city considers whether or not each city has things like schools, libraries, and parks, plus things like grocery stores, places to go shopping, entertainment venues, and more. Being ranked one of Michigan’s best cities means that Milford residents are near lots of things that make the city an all-around enjoyable place to live.
