The top 25 Michigan suburbs to raise a family have been rated in this Detroit Free Press story.

To be fair, Northfield doesn't feel much like a suburb.  That's what I like about living here.  Even if the label seems a bit off, it's nice to see someone joining us in appreciating where we live, the way we live, and what we share.

According to reporter Elissa Robinson, "the 2015 Best Places rankings were based on age demographics, school ratings, crime rates, and access to affordable housing, child care, libraries, and grocery stores."  Northfield Township's Number 11 rank places us in the company of tree lined suburbs like Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, and Grosse Pointe.
