Now open at 600 W. Ann Arbor Trail in downtown Plymouth, Michigan, Wimpy Burger brings another restaurant option to the city. The burgers are similar to iconic Bates Hamburgers in Livionia – a hot, greasy slider that’s packed with flavor and nicely affordable too. The restaurant interior hasn’t changed much from the previous restaurant tenants that have come and gone in this space. Parking is easy and the place is worth a quick try if you like your slider-esque burgers.
An interesting new shop on Forest Ave: State of Comics & Collectibles is now open and worth a visit even if you don’t read comics. There’s a wide range of books and collectibles that will be sure to fascinate you. Now we just need a good playing card and hobby shop!
Visit the shop at 577 Forest Ave Plymouth, MI 48170 or you can visit them online at www.stateofcomics.com
The Place Place Gastro Pub at 336 Main St in downtown Plymouth is getting ready to open. The old 336 Main has been with us for some time and now it’s being revitalized into the the Park Place Gastro Pub. Walking by today, here’s their new look… and here’s a link to their facebook page.

It’s that time of year again! The kids are back in school and the smell of barbeque smoke drifts through downtown Plymouth as the annual Fall Festival is here. September 8-10, 2017 will be non-stop pancakes, spaghetti, and barbeque chicken along with carnival rides for all ages, midway games, concerts, and attractions for everyone.
Downtown streets are closed off and for one weekend, downtown Plymouth is transformed into a local fair with all the pre-requisites. I have to admit, this is one of my personal favorites of all the festivals that happen in Plymouth – good fun for the whole family and another great reason the area continues to thrive.

It’s mid-summer and we now have data for the first six months of 2017! Our markets of Plymouth and Northville, both City and Township, remain strong and steady. The charts are fairly self-explanatory and locals know how intense the market is around us. The City of Plymouth continues to increase in value as the downtown area flourishes with busy shops, restaurants, and events. The City of Northville has also seen significant increases in value while the number of new listings remains low across the region. The Townships of both Plymouth and Northville have also shown steady price increases in addition to growing new development activity – especially in Northville Township. The lack of inventory as shown below illustrates that in an area where there is limited opportunity for new development, the price of existing homes will appreciate in a strong market.
It’s that time of year again, where the artists move in and showcase their talents to people that come from all over Metro-Detroit and beyond. Art in the Park is July 7, 8, and 9th!
Come one, come all, to enjoy Plymouth’s Art in the Park!
