What’s so big about Novi?

Novi Michigan is nestled about 25 miles northwest of Detroit and 29 miles northeast of Ann Arbor. This beautiful and traditional community is home to roughly 55,000 residents and is located in Oakland County. No one quite knows where the name “Novi” came from and there are several theories as to how the unusual name came about. Nevertheless, this historical town has been considered an incorporated city since 1969 although the township around Novi has been inhabited since the 1830s. Our beautiful weather and distinct seasons sets us apart from other places in the country and several residents feel this is an ideal place to settle down and call home.

Novi is considered to be one of the fastest growing cities in all of Michigan. With the addition of Twelve Oaks Mall, this is been a destination spot rather than a town seen from the freeway. Interstate 96 runs directly through the town making it easy for nearby neighborhoods and communities to gain access to popular hotspots such as the Novi Town Center, West Oaks and the Novi Shopping Center. Our shopping is known throughout the community and smaller neighborhoods with quiet streets and traditional homes. Most of the communities in Novi are perfectly designed and properly planned just outside the commercial area. The Grand River Avenue runs east and west through downtown with off-road heading down to residential neighborhood and subdivisions.

Although most of the surrounding farmland has been developed, certain parks and farms remain such as the Tollgate Farm which Michigan State University uses as an upper cultural extension. The Lakeshore Park is also a popular natural area located between Walled Lake and Twleve Mile Road. This is one of the largest municipal parks in Southeast Michigan and offers dozens of activities such as picnicking, hiking and biking, swimming, barbecue and kitchen areas as well is playground and concessions. This ideal Park is popular in the summer and the winter and includes sledding and skiing when the weather allows.

There are dozens of local activities and festivals throughout the year including the Sizzling Summer Arts Series featuring movies and concerts all summer long in the park. The Novi farmers market, open every Saturday from June until October at Fuest Park features some of the freshest and local produce offerings around.
