      Rochester is a Small College Homey Town
      I've been living in Rochester for 4 years and have enjoyed the excitement in this college Community that has lots of nightlife and various activities to enjoy in a small town laid-back atmosphere. Rochester has lots of trails and other amenities with recreational facilities to enjoy and experience family fun and unique cultural amenities. The Paint Creek and Clinton River Trails are great opportunities to enjoy the beautiful natural scenery in Rochester and also provide opportunities for recreational activities for families to enjoy. The school systems in Rochester are excellent and provide my for kids with an extremely well-structured education.

      The best areas in Rochester are around Great Oaks Country Club where there is an excellent upper-scale community with diverse well-educated neighbors that create a unique and respected collection of individuals. There's very little crime in Rochester and you can enjoy the city without fear of anything violent happening. Rochester is on the outskirts of Detroit Michigan and provides anyone seeking a quiet town on the outskirts of Detroit will find Rochester fits the bill.
