Birmingham

Centrally located along the Woodward corridor between Detroit and Pontiac, Birmingham offers an ideal combination of city living and suburban luxury.

 

ABOUT

Birmingham is located in the southeastern portion of Oakland County, one of the wealthiest counties in the country. It has a pedestrian-friendly downtown hub filled with myriad upscale retailers and fine dining around every corner, and your choice of many salons and spas. In sunshine or snowflakes, our community values social gatherings and promotes diversity through a range of outdoor festivals and performances

 

DINING/SHOPPING

Whether you’re craving the most delicate, handmade pasta this side of the Atlantic or a big juicy burger, Birmingham has the restaurant for you. Enjoy casual classics with a twist at local eatery Luxe, or dive into elegant European fare at Forest or Pernoi, which is known for its farm-to-table, precisely curated menus. Start your mornings with artisanal jams and select hand-ground coffee courtesy of Commonwealth, a modern coffee shop catering to refined palates. And wrap up your afternoons with the most famous slider in Michigan at Hunter House. 

 

For the chef and the host, visit Primi Piatti, a charming Italian market that not only provides outstanding prepared dishes, but also brings unique varieties of Italian cheese, meats, pastas, and housewares to Southeastern Michigan. A wider selection of groceries can be found at Papa Joe’s Market, less than a mile away, providing an upscale, sophisticated market experience that spans everything from prepared foods to fresh organic produce to a world class wine selection staffed by an expert sommelier. Beyond these local markets, you can also take advantage of other national chains like Whole Foods and Kroger.

 

Strolling Birmingham’s streets puts retailers on display, with recognizable names like Johnny Was, West Elm, and Lululemon anchoring streets of independent retailers carrying a wide array of upscale clothing and housewares. Visit Caruso Caruso to add a pop of denim fashion to your wardrobe, or peek in Tender’s window for your next dream red carpet gown. Get on track with tastemakers Lori Karbal and Found Objects, local shops dedicated to providing you with the best gift options for any occasion.

 

AROUND TOWN

Birmingham offers a vibrant array of outdoor and indoor opportunities to keep even the most active person engaged. Whether you prefer biking along the Rouge River, taking part in a pick-up baseball game, sipping mulled cider, or visiting an historic movie theater, Birmingham has your number. Holiday time signals the annual return of the German-style Winter Markt, while summer brings with it weekly farmers market  and outdoor performances. In the fall and spring, get ready for Restaurant Week at many of Birmingham’s top eatieries.

 

EDUCATION

Birmingham Public Schools serve not only the community of Birmingham, but parts of the surrounding areas of Troy, Bloomfield Hills, Bloomfield Township, Franklin, Beverly Hills, Bingham Farms, and a portion of Southfield. This outstanding educational community is one of the most highly respected in the area, ranking in the top 10 on Niche for both Best School District and Safest School District. Prestigious private schools like the Roeper Institute, Detroit Country Day, and Cranbrook are also easily within reach.

 

WHERE TO STAY

While you search for your new home, stay in one of our luxury hotels. The Daxton, newly built, is a modern adventure through art and food, boasting one of the most fabulous art collections in the area. For more traditional tastes, check into the Townsend, a Birmingham icon that still features afternoon tea on weekend days and serves American standards at the Rugby Grille. For the more budget-conscious traveler, the Holiday Inn is just blocks from all the hustle and bustle of this energetic little city.
