Head southwest on Interstate 75 out of Detroit for about 12 miles and you will run into the charming bedroom community of Lincoln Park, Mich. A small town of residential homes and businesses close to the crossroads of southeastern Michigan, many residents are giving Lincoln Park apartments for rent a second look. According to information from City-Data, the cost of living here is exceptionally low, but the city still maintains a high quality of life that attracts many families and companies alike, making it one of Detroit's most prized suburbs.
Lincoln Park has had a French influence ever since its beginnings in the early 1700s, and remained an agriculturally significant area for French farmers until 1925, when it became a city in its own right. Because of Henry Ford's "$5 a day" wage, many workers in the area began moving to Lincoln Park, especially after soldiers returned from World War II in the 1940s due to its many employment opportunities
Today, Lincoln Park has developed into a prosperous and stable community with many beautiful parks, excellent schools and a renowned community renewal program. Residents here enjoy a historic downtown with a storied past but still have an eye for the future, with more than 38,000 citizens, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau.
Because of the city's location near many streams, rivers and lakes, it should come as no surprise that Lincoln Park's recreational opportunities are one of the many reasons why residents love living here. The city has 19 area parks that covers 6 square miles with plenty of activities, like canoeing, hiking, biking and team sports for adults and kids alike.
This quaint midwestern town takes great pride in its history, so one of the best ways to identify with the community as a new resident is to visit the historical museum that houses some of Lincoln Park's preserved artifacts and photographic materials.
