Located just 31 miles from the heart of Detroit sits Auburn Hills, this suburban neighborhood, while small, maintains a superior quality of life for its residents.
Auburn Hills has a lot to offer when it comes to things to do. Between the stadium, The Palace of Auburn Hills, the Great Lakes Crossing mall, four universities, a thriving business center and tons of parks, this city is a great place to live for families and young professionals.

Although Auburn Hills isn't a large area, the city still offers a surprising amount of restaurants in such a close neighborhood.
Makimoto Sushi Bar & Asian Kitchen sits just a few blocks West of the Oakland University campus. They stay open to 9 p.m. during the week, and 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, making this a perfect stop for students to go after class. Locals call the spicy tuna roll a favorite, one of many on the menu. While most sushi restaurants only squirt the spicy Mayo on top, Makimoto's includes the spicy mayo in the tuna itself as well.
With some locals claiming it as the best pizza in all of Detroit, Buddy's Pizza definitely fulfills your pizza craving. This family friendly pizza parlor instantly gets your tummy rumbling with all the delicious smells in the air. The pizza sauce sets Buddy's apart from other establishments. On the BBQ chicken pizza, when most places just layer on thick sauce, Buddy's uses just the right combination of cheese to sauce as to not overpower the other savory flavors. Buddy's serves every pizza as a 4-piece or 8-piece, cooking each in a square pan instead of by the slice.
For breakfast or lunch, stop by the Toasted Bun. The friendly staff helps you by answering any question you have quickly so you can get to eating. They have different sandwich and soup deals almost every day, providing diners with a variety of options. If you are looking for a traditional breakfast, order the traditional omelette with a side of bacon, sausage and hash browns.
As far as nightlife goes, this neighborhood leans toward a more suburban lifestyle than downtown city living, but there are still a few local pubs and sports bars.
Hoops Sports & Spirits affords residents a hometown hot spot for reasonably priced drinks. Being located right down the road from the Palace, this place can get crowded before a big concert or basketball game. They also offer $6 pitchers for you and your friends to share.
For another option for cheap drinks and some karaoke, stop in Duffy's Pub. From 9 to 10 p.m. every night, Duffy's offers $1 drafts and $2 well drinks, making this a great option if you are looking for a night out that won't hurt your wallet.
The Palace of Auburn Hills, one of the biggest music venues in the state of Michigan, resides in Auburn Hills. Some of the biggest performing names in entertainment have performed there, such as Sting, Michael Jackson and Madonna. The NBA team, the Pistons, and the WNBA team, the Detroit Shock, both play in the Palace.
Auburn Hills originally began as Pontiac Township until 1983 when it became the City of Auburn Hills. However, the first time this city was called "Auburn Hills" was in 1964 when Oakland Community College gave this name to their campus at the cross streets of Featherstone and Squirrel roads.
Auburn Hills plays home turf to four colleges, Oakland University, Baker College, Cooley Law School and Oakland Community College. In fact, the Oakland University Art Gallery services the community as the only gallery for exhibits.
For over twenty years, the annual tree lighting ceremony includes a visit from Santa, Mrs. Claus and the Mayor to light the tree. They also have an annual Easter egg hunt for the kids in the neighborhood.
Most residents in Auburn Hills drive cars to get around the neighborhood and surrounding areas. While a few bus options on the Oakland Community College and Oakland University campuses serve students, very few options exist for the local residents. Through Auburn Hills runs Interstate 75 and Highway 59, giving residents access to most of the state.
If owning a car isn't your style, call Uber or Lyft for a ride to your destination. Better yet, bike or walk to your errands. Most of the streets rank as biking friendly with plenty of sidewalks and parks to get around.
All along Interstate 75 awaits a thriving business community. The companies Chrysler, Comerica, and EDS all built campuses in Auburn Hills.
