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 for lunch or dinner in the area, you’re not going to have to look far. The area includes many casual restaurants and sports bars such as the new Big Beaver Tavern and Buffalo Wild Wings. There are also a lot of upscale establishments to choose from. The Somerset Mall area offers J. Alexander and Capital Grille (both in the north section of the mall), and Ocean Prime, which offers a fantastic patio for summer dining.
One of Troy’s biggest nightlife benefits is that it is in close proximity to Royal Oak and Birmingham, two of Detroit metro area’s biggest nightlife hot-spots. But that doesn’t mean that there is a shortage of things to do at night in Troy. If you’re looking for a hip hangout after work, or later into the night, Kona Grill is often packed with professionals young and old. If you’re in the mood for something more tropical, Bahama Breeze is just down the road, and frequently offers live Caribbean music on their enclosed patio area. » Read more: Own a Home in Troy Michigan and Be Entertained!
