Why we love Clarkston!

Clarkston is located 45 minutes north of downtown Detroit on I 75.  The City of the Village of Clarkston is only about 900 population but is surrounded by much larger Independence Township.

We love:

Summer in Clarkston

Parke Lake in summer

and winter.

Parke Lake in winter

We have Sidewalks.  This is a walking town.

Down Main Street

We have Parades.  Our house is a front row seat to the parades down Main Street on the 4th of July and Labor Day.  But you've got to get up early to stake out your spot. We even have a night parade at Christmas!

4th of July ParadeParade

We have Water.  Park Lake, Mill Pond and Deer Lake surround the Village.  Deer Lake is a public all sports lake. 

We have a sense of Community and History.

Welcome to Clarkston

Found this video on YouTube so you can take a tour of Main St to the music of Bob Seger, a local.  Our house is at the end of the video.
