South Lyon’s small-town feel may come from the horses rambling by on the dirt roads, but its central location in SouthEast Michigan makes it idyllic for both worlds. Which is why, PiperPartners real estate agent Megan Simanca says, it’s the perfect place to live in Michigan. She may be slightly biased as she grew up in the city and is a current resident, but we’ll let the city facts speak for themselves.
It’s less than an hour from Detroit, Windsor, Lansing, and less than half an hour to Ann Arbor and Novi (*given there’s not been a snow-apocalypse).
The varying seasonal activities make South Lyon the ultimate destination, for families interested in a fall day out at Erwin Orchards and Cider Mill, or the weekend-long PumpkinFest celebration downtown with games, music and more, to film die-hards attending the annual 3 Minutes in Lyon Film Festival.
When you do visit South Lyon, make sure to include a pit stop at the Historic South Lyon Hotel, a two-story bar and restaurant over 140 years old. The popular hangout is the best place to meet the locals while enjoying live entertainment.
Megan says the lake lifestyle is hard to beat, and with the new construction popping up around the area, its easier than ever to gain access to it.
