      Depends on what part of rochester hills
      Rochester Hills is like the Northern vibe of Oakland county. Its a fine place for Families and wealthy people. I wouldn't recommend it for the poor and the disabled people who dont have transportation. Most residents in Rochester have jobs and a car. Crime rate? Mm depends on what part of Rochester you live in. Where i lived, i have experienced a couple of home invasions, trouble with pot dealers, and gotten into few fist fights with my neighbors. i also know a Sex offender and a few Schizophrenic outlaws who were from Rochester Hills. but i probably just hung out with the wrong people. Most of the city is normal and layed back. But its not runned by a city police department. Place for Girlfriends? mm, yes if your someone special and has something going for your life, there lots of fine single women in Rochester. but if your kinda on the lazy poor side, Your best bet would be girls from Pontiac. Rochester is good for summer parties. lots of parks, Bike trails, Woods. plenty of places to hang outdoors. My favorite place here is Spencer beach. Thats just my little tip advice

      Great City for Families: Rochester Hills, MI
      Rochester Hills is one of the most affluent cities in Michigan. It is kind of like a best kept secret amongst Michiganders. As a safe city with very low crime rates, this city is highly recommended for raising families. Compared to other parts of Michigan, Rochester Hills is like a diamond in the rough. As a native Michigander who grew up in Shelby, I often visited Rochester Hills to go shopping on the weekends. I have always had a pleasant experience visiting Rochester Hills.

      Rochester Hills boasts some of the best schools in Michigan. When I was younger, I attended a private school named St. John's in Rochester Hills. St. John's was an amazing school back in its day. There are also great public schools in the area. Madonna even went to one of the public high schools in Rochester Hills and grew up in this great city! There is a beautiful downtown outdoor shopping center that is simply amazing. There are many elegant stores and fantastic restaurants. One of the best restaurants in Rochester Hills is Kruse & Muer. This restaurant is upscale and very classy, yet affordable too. Overall, Rochester Hill is one of the best cities in Michigan.
