Sterling Heights

Sterling Heights loves a good party.

As Michigan's 4th largest city and Metro Detroit's 2nd largest suburb, it is host to many celebrations.

Residents and visitors alike come out for annual events like Sterling Fest, Music in the Park, the Memorial Day parade, SterlingScapes, the American Polish Festival and “A Sterling Christmas.”

Sterlingfest Art & Music Fair is a large event that takes place each summer in Dodge Park. The fair features food stands, carnival rides and performances by both local musicians and well-known artists like Rick Springfield and REO Speedwagon.

Speaking of music, Freedom Hill County Park and Amphitheater is slated to reopen again in 2013. Prior to its closing in 2009, it was home to an annual fireworks display as well as concerts and live performances.

But if polka music is your thing, there’s plenty of it (as well as potato pancakes) at what is arguably one of the largest Polish festival in Michigan. The Polish American Century club hosts the event every summer which includes food, music, crafts, and of course, a pierogi-eating contest.

In December, Dodge Park is transformed into “A Sterling Christmas.” Visitors enjoy the popular Christmas Carousel as well as tours of the Upton House (decked out for the holidays) throughout the night.

Aside from great community events, residents can be proud of the city’s stellar report card:

  • Sterling Heights retained its ranking in 2010 as Michigan’s safest city among communities with more than 100,000 residents, according to FBI statistics released in 2011.
  • CNN/Money.com ranked Sterling Heights fifth in the nation in home affordability (2009).
  • According to a new study released by American City Business Journals, Sterling Heights is ranked seventh in the nation and second in Michigan on its list of the least socio-economically stressed large U.S. cities.
  • CNN/Money.com ranked Sterling Heights fifth in the nation in home affordability (2009).

 Sterling Heights has a large business community that employs thousands. Visteon Corporation, Chrysler Group LLC, Ford Motor Company, Detroit Newspapers, TRW Inc., US Farthane Corporation, and Breed Technologies are all located here.

 

For the past 30+ years, shoppers have come to Lakeside Mall for stores like Macy’s, The Limited, Sears, H&M, Hallmark, The Children’s Place, and the Disney Store just to name a few. Little shoppers like to take a break in the food court and ride the carousel.

The city is served by the award-winning Utica Community and Warren Consolidated school districts as well as the Macomb Intermediate school district.

Children and adults alike enjoy the great public library, many parks, and the fantastic Sterling Heights Nature Center with its engaging displays celebrating Michigan’s wildlife. Some of the items on exhibit include pelts, bones, eggs and nests. There is also a large tank for viewing native Michigan fish and turtles. Visitors to the center can learn from lectures, guided nature walks, films and hands-on activities.

Sterling Heights offers more than just a good time. It offers safety, a strong sense of community, a variety of opportunities for employment, award-winning schools and well-established neighborhoods.
