PARKS/TRAILS

Macomb Orchard Trail- Named for the rich assortment of fruit trees in southeast Michigan, this trail cuts a 23.5-mile arch across the northern portion of Macomb County.
Stony Creek MetroparkStony Creek Metropark offers 4,435 scenic acres teeming with opportunities for outdoor recreation all year long. At the heart of the park sits the gorgeous 500-acre Stony Creek Lake, where boaters, anglers, and swimmers can spend time enjoying a day on the water. Surrounding this serene lake, you’ll find lush woodlands, gorgeous wetlands, tallgrass prairies, and expansive fields in every direction. With great paved and unpaved trails for hikers, cyclists, in-line skaters and wanderers. In winter, watch the park transform into a world of snowshoeing, fat tire mountain biking, cross-country skiing and more. 
Waldenburg Park- Waldenburg Park is a developed park approximately 17 acres in size located on 21 Mile Road about ¼ mile east of Romeo Plank Road. It offers a children's play area, picnic pavilions, basketball court, restrooms, and a walking trail.

GOLF

The Orchards- The golf course, with its classic looks and style of play, is an eighteen-hole championship daily fee course, designed by internationally acclaimed golf course architect, Robert Trent Jones Jr. Reminiscent of the private clubs of the twenties. The Orchards challenges the golfer by permitting a variety of approaches to each hole.
Cherry Creek Golf Club- The natural beauty of a gentle rolling terrain, variety of oak, ash and cherry trees combined with 18 magnificent holes of championship golf makes Cherry Creek a truly unique golfing experience and one of Metro Detroit’s best golf destinations.
Sycamore Hills Golf Club- 27-hole championship course will please the most discriminating golfer. Designed by master golf architect Jerry Matthews, the three 9-hole courses at Sycamore Hills offer a diversified challenge to any golf enthusiast seldom found in one location.

Hy's Cider Mill - In the fall of 1973, Hyman and his family opened Hy's Cider Mill.  The first cider press they had could make 200 gallons of cider an hour.  Today, the press can produce 1,200 gallons per hour! Come check out Hy's Cider Mill store, take a wagon ride to "U-Pick" apples, and enjoy a caramel apple or donut. Located at 37 Mile off of M-53 North in Romeo, Michigan. 


ON THE WATER

Along Macomb County’s waterways in Harrison Township, St. Clair Shores, Chesterfield Township and New Baltimore, there are more than 16,000 boat slips. The Michigan Department of Natural Resources hosts around 500,000 boat trips annually and its three public boat ramps rank among the most heavily used in the state of Michigan.

Lake St. Clair - Lake St. Clair is truly the heart of the Great Lakes. It has more than 430 square miles of fresh water and 160 miles of shoreline. The average depth is 10 feet, with a maximum depth of only 21 feet. The lake is one of the best freshwater fisheries in North America and also one of the busiest recreational waterways in the Midwest.

Clinton River - The Clinton River is one of the nation’s best urban paddling rivers. Anyone wanting to paddle the Clinton River should understand that sections can be challenging and the water can run very fast and high, especially after a rain event. You should always check the streamflow gage nearest to the area you are paddling to assess if the river is running high.


WINERIES 

Macomb County is the home to many local wineries and it continues to grow. These wineries have so much to offer - from robust and dry wines to fruity creations and many palate pleasing flavors in between. 

Vino & Vibes - At Vino & Vibes, you will find an omnivorous wine list with only 50 precisely selected wines, meticulous craft cocktails and a selection of small plates that will pair perfectly with your today's wine of choice.

PROPERTY TAXES

Property tax is a tax paid on property owned by an individual or other legal entity, such as a corporation. Most commonly, property tax is a real estate ad-valorem tax, which can be considered a regressive tax. It is calculated by a local government where the property is located and paid by the owner of the property.

If you're buying a home in Macomb County, you can now estimate your property taxes on that new home by local unit and school district using millage rates. This is also useful for current owners.
