Troy is a suburb of the Detroit metro area and was ranked as one of The Best Places to Live in the country by CNN Money in 2008. Residents of Troy apartments enjoy proximity to shopping, dining, recreation and entertainment which are just a few reasons that make this city so great.
Troy may be home to several chain restaurants, but the local flavor is also demonstrated in unique, locally-owned eateries. Alibi is a favorite among residents and is known for its delicious pizza pies. Try other dinner options on the menu or pick up a popular thin crust pizza with all of your favorite toppings to take back to your Troy apartment for dinner. For more favorite comfort foods try Hippos Hot Dogs, or if you are looking for healthier options, pick up a tasty sandwich or salad at Ridley's Bakery Cafe.
After you have dined on local fare, try shopping at the Somerset Collection. Chances are, you have never shopped at a place like this. The open, glass-clad mall is light and airy and also includes a glass enclosed moving sidewalk which is one of the most well known features of the mall. You will find nothing but world class retail shops and restaurants to explore.
You will find several family-friendly activities near your Troy apartment as well. The aquatic center offers fun during the summer with swimming pools, a kids spray pool, slides, volleyball courts and a sandy play area. You could also take the family to the Lloyd A. State Nature center to discover the wildlife and foliage of the area.
