Welcome to Huntington Woods
Metro Detroit’s quaint “City of Homes,” minutes away from all the city has to offer
Conveniently located between Woodward Avenue and Interstate 696 lies the quiet and close-knit neighborhood of Huntington Woods. Just 12 miles north of downtown, Huntington Woods has become the perfect, quaint community for those working in inner Detroit who would like a central neighborhood, but may not want to be downtown full-time. Known as “The City of Homes
,” Huntington Woods is made up entirely of charming, single-family residences.
Huntington Woods is an inner-ring suburb located within walking distance of downtown Royal Oak, and it is only a short drive from the downtowns of Ferndale and Birmingham. In addition to parks and recreational green space, Huntington Woods is also home to the Rackham Golf Course
and the Detroit Zoo
. The Detroit Zoo is home to over 2,000 animals of 237 species, situated on 125 acres. As a result, the neighborhood is a unique enclave of tree-lined streets and manicured lawns only an arm’s length away from the conveniences and amenities of modern-day urban life.
What to Love
Huntington Woods has affectionately been nicknamed the “City of Homes,” consisting entirely of single-family residences.
A convenient location between Interstate 696 and Woodward Avenue, situated just 12 miles from downtown Detroit, has made this a popular spot for commuters.
Tree-lined streets and lush, green, uniform front lawns give Huntington Woods a quaint and quiet vibe not found in many other parts of the city.
Life in Huntington Woods is largely peaceful. Residents tend to spend free time close to home at one of their many local parks. Greenspaces, playgrounds, sports courts, and other fields offer ample options for getting some fresh air. Another option is the Rackham Golf Course
, owned by the city of Detroit. Rackham has consistently been named one of the best municipal golf courses in Michigan. With a central location and easy access to freeways, short trips to neighboring communities are quick and easy.
Dining, Entertainment, & Shopping
Huntington Woods specifically is a community made up entirely of single-family homes. However, their close proximity to many of Detroit's major thoroughfares makes it easy to get out and grab a quick bite or sip without venturing too far from home. The neighborhoods surrounding Huntington Woods pay tribute to the storied past of the Motor City, with locally-owned and operated businesses situated in historic settings.
While working from home has become more common in recent years, sometimes a day out of the house is necessary. This is where The Office Coffee Shop comes into play. The Office truly is the best of both worlds. One half is open to the public with a full menu of coffee, pastries, and other snacks. The other half consists of a co-working environment with private offices for rent, space available for events, and professional services specially tailored to start-ups and entrepreneurs.
More relaxed mornings off-the-clock can be spent at O.W.L.
Specializing in breakfast, brunch, and late-night snacks, they are open from early till late seven days a week. Some of their early-morning and late-night features include fried chicken, tacos, decked-out avocado toast, and classic breakfast sandwiches, all crafted to hit the spot.
If a night out on the town is needed, Vinsetta Garage
is a Detroit favorite, located in the oldest garage east of the Mississippi River. The completely transformed space is reminiscent of past times - featuring an extensive lineup of unique burgers, one of the best macaroni and cheese dishes the Detroit area has to offer, and foods originally craved by the founding workers of the Motor City.
Things To Do
Although Huntington Woods is entirely residential, major entertainment is located just a few streets away. Two popular attractions include the Rackham Golf Course
