Compare Sterling Heights to Top 10 Best Places
This northern Detroit suburb prides itself on being family-friendly and safe, and its nestled between two award-winning school districts. Housing is affordable (the median is in the $160,000s) but also wide-ranging (half-million dollar homes arent hard to find).
Residents flock to many of the water resources in the community, including Lake St. Claire and the Clinton River, both of which have miles of walking and biking trails alongside them.
On the downside, many people here work for the auto industry, which has been suffering lately.
