The Grosse Pointes consist of 5 separate cities, Grosse Pointe Park, Grosse Pointe City, Grosse Pointe Farms, Grosse Pointe Shores and Grosse Pointe Woods. All of the Pointes, with the exception of Grosse Pointe Woods, have a portion along the shore of Lake St. Clair. The Grosse Pointes are known for their neighborhood values, a strong school system, resident only waterfront parks, libraries and superior city services. Grosse Pointe real estate ranges from modest bungalows to multi-million dollar waterfront mansions.
Grosse Pointe is an easy 15-20 minute commute, without highways, to the heart of downtown Detroit. This allows residents to have the peaceful, suburban lifestyle, yet close to all the Detroit has to offer, including businesses, professional sports (Lions, Tigers, Red Wings and the return of the Pistons), world class entertainment, festivals, parades, hydroplane races, Grand Prix racing and more.
