Small shops, fun dining experiences, great neighborhoods and friendly faces – that’s Berkley.
Known for its small-town appeal, but just minutes from downtown Detroit, Berkley has a warm atmosphere throughout the neighborhoods and downtown. Named in Money Magazine’s “Top 50 Best Places to Live in the U.S” (2015), and PennyGeeks.com “Top 10 Places in the U.S. to Raise a Family” (2018), Berkley has tree-lined streets, great schools and walkable downtown shops and restaurants.
In Berkley, longtime residents and young families enjoy neighborhood parks, summer festivals, winter carnivals and annual traditions like Berkley Days. For the past 28 years, Berkley has been named a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation. In 2004, the city became the first community in Michigan to receive the Arbor Day Foundation’s Sterling Award as a leader and innovator in community forestry.
