Wixom Michigan is a community that was known for a Ford manufacturing plant. Along the highway is a stretch of commercial and industrial parks. The big Ford manufacturing plant was torn down in 2013 and now it is becoming a shopping area. There are no big commercial plants, there is more small industry in the city now. Smaller tool and die shops, and small 1 story office buildings. Why many home buyers relocate to Wixom is the easy access to the highway. I-696 runs through the south side of the city. 15 Mile Road/Maple Road and Grand River also make getting to and from the city a little easier.
Does Wixom have a central downtown? As one of my guys in the Army used to say "kinda, sorta, but not really". A few years back they re-routed some of the road and revamped some buildings in the area you could call downtown. There is no true old historic area that is 3 or 4 blocks long. There are some restaurants and a few stores, but nothing to speak of. To find an old time downtown you would have to go to nearby Milford, Northville, or Farmington Hills. If you are looking for shopping then Novi is the place you will head for. In less than 5 minutes you can be to the 12 Oaks shopping area. A large mall with many smaller open shopping centers/malls nearby. You will find lots of restaurants, and a large modern newer hospital in Novi too. Providence Hospital is probably less than 15 years old. So yes there is not a lot of shopping right in city, but there is so much real close by.
To get to the airport or downtown Detroit is about a 40 minute ride. You are not in the closest city to the airport, but you are along a major route. There is one small private all sports lake in the city. Loon Lake is just a small lake that is surrounded by homes. Older homes on the south side and newer brick colonials on the North side. It is that way throughout the city. Old areas and newer subdivisions with modern homes. It is not an expensive high end community. By that I mean you are not going to find any or many homes over $500,000 (in 2014) and definitely it is not a city to find million dollar homes. So if you are moving to Wixom you will be moving to a middle class to upper middle class community. You will both white collar and blue collar workers living in the city.
Not to far from the city is Proud Lake state recreation area and Kensington Metro Park. Whether you want to hike, swim, kayak, or horseback ride you have the park land to enjoy Michigan's great outdoors within a short drive. Movie theaters, and other entertainment venues are close too.
So why relocate to Wixom Michigan. I would say one of the reasons is that you can find reasonable priced new homes. It is also a very safe community with little crime. It is one of Metro Detroit's many safe cities to raise a family. Sure you will find the occasional home break in or vandalism, but not rampant daily crime. No gangs, no drive bys, it is a place to call home because of the low crime. Another plus when considering a Wixom relocation is the schools. Children who live in the city will go to Walled Lake schools. Feel free to do research on the schools to decide for yourself whether you like the community.
