i grew up there. The best restaurants are Little Italy on Horton downtown, Rocky's on Seven Mile. Wagon Wheel is the best hole in the wall bar. Rebecca's in downtown is the best greasy spoon restaurant.
Mayberry State Park is a great resource. There's a farm there and great biking trails.
It is not far from Proud Lake, Hudson Mills, and Kensington parks.
The High School basketball team is pretty good.
Almost everything has been transformed into subdivisions.
The racetrack is fun, but it's also one of the most depressing places you can go.
The rec basketball league is shockingly competitive.
hahhaahahaha i could go on for years. i lived there for 18 years and my parents still live there, so i'm always around. Feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.

I lived there for 11 years when my father got a job there in Northville. It changed dramatically from when I initially moved there from when I left. Land that was farmland or golf courses are now either condos or homes. Although the Training Center has long since passed, some say that some of the tunnels still exist.
The downtown has little nightlife save for the four bars in and around the downtown. The Starting Gate on Center has my favorite pizza, but the interior hasn't changed since 1981.
There is a difference from those who have moved in the area very recently and those who have lived there before urban sprawl came to it, and parts of the town reflect it. I really can't put my finger on specifics, but I can feel it.
Not a bad area all and all. It still is a small town if you live in the city limits or close to it. If you are in the outdoors there are plenty of areas close by to participate in outdoor activities.

I thought Livonia was the greatest place in the world.

Northville Twp. and Livonia (along Haggerty and near Schoolcraft College) has a restaurant row.
Northville has an old looking downtown kind of like Royal Oak but not as vibrant.

That the better place to live is about 30 minutes or so down I-75.

I'm trying to think where that would be, Rhymes, since I-75 doesn't go anywhere near Northville. Unless, of course, you meant I-275 and you're a big Romulus booster...

haha, I-75, I-275, all the same to me.
No, seriously, though, I meant 275, just was typing too fast.

"Hmmmm, Belleville or Northville? Belleville or Northville?..."
