When people come to the Detroit area to look for a home for rent, many probably believe they will ultimately end up settling within the city -- and for good reason. Cities tend to offer a wealth of job opportunities, and enough musical acts, museums, restaurants and other cultural attractions to keep anyone busy and satisfied.
However, those who expand their search to the city's surrounding neighborhoods may find the very same attributes in a smaller community that offers a few small-town gems of its own. People who look to rent a home in Royal Oak, Michigan, will find a town that boasts a thriving downtown area and caters to young professionals and families.
Located just miles down the road from the nightlife of Detroit, many Royal Oak rentals are actually situated within walking distance of the town's own entertainment district. The downtown area includes such mainstays as The Royal Oak Music Theater, the Landmark Main Art Theater and Mark Ridley's Comedy Castle, a comedy club that hosts nationally-known acts, and was especially notable for the early performances of Tim Allen and Dave Coulier. In addition, diners will be overwhelmed by their epicurean options, as Royal Oaks rentals are close to both sandwich shacks and high-end Italian, Belgian and Nepali restaurants.
Finally, those renting homes in Royal Oaks can experience a unique part of the town's culture when the masses of motorcycle enthusiasts arrive for the summer. One Wednesday nights, residents expect to see Main Street full of Harleys, while the sport bikes move in on Thursdays.
