At the junction of I-75 and I-696 meet, you’ll find Royal Oak–a city that is literally in the center of it all! Whether you’re looking for neighborhoods with tree-lined streets, urban style lofts, or neighborhoods rich with certain types of architecture– like Craftsman or Mid-Century Modern–you’ll find what you’re looking for in Royal Oak! Great schools, friendly neighborhoods, and an exciting and walkable downtown–all with a location that can’t be beat! Royal Oak can be divided into north and south ends with Twelve Mile Road as the dividing line.
