Detroit, Michigan, is a popular locale for anyone interested in living in a townhouse in an affordable city with a rich entertainment history. Known for being the place where Motown was born, Detroit still offers a variety of live performances. Some of them are held at the Fox Theater on Woodward Avenue and The Palace of Auburn Hills, which is also home to the Pistons NBA team. Selden Standard and Motor City Brewing Works are popular places to eat and drink, and they're both in the trendy Midtown district north of downtown. The historic Eastern Market hosts a farmers' market on Saturdays, and food stalls are open all week to give people in the city a convenient place to pick up lunch or fresh meat and produce before a dinner party at home. Sports fans who are also foodies can tailgate at the market's parking lots before Lions football games.

Townhouses work well for young professionals interested in planting roots in a city or young families interested in finding a place that gives them enough space while still being close to work and entertainment options. Midtown and the area around the Cass Corridor have many rental options, and this area will put you close to big employers like Wayne State University Hospital and companies headquartered downtown. Living here also gives you access to public transportation as several bus stops and the People Mover light rail stops are nearby. Further out of the city, you'll find options in the northeastern neighborhoods, and these will likely give you a small yard in which the kids can run around. Rents may range from $800 - $1,100, with higher prices corresponding with areas closer to the city center.

Townhouses usually have two bedrooms and one bathroom, ranging from 900 - 1,200 square feet. They include a decent sized living room and a kitchen that may be big enough for a small dining table. Newer units will likely have a more open feel with a kitchen that includes a bar-level countertop that leads into the dining and living areas.
