Rochester

Rochester is a small city on the outskirts of Metro Detroit, in northeast Oakland County, in the U.S. state of Michigan. The city has a total area of 3.83 square miles made up of all land and has a population of 12,711 according to the 2010 census. Since an annexation of a section of Avon Township, now Rochester Hills, the city has an eastern boundary that extends to the border with Macomb County.

Rochester also is home to a downtown area that’s a perfect mix of historic and hip, downtown Rochester attracts both local residents and visitors from across the state of Michigan. Downtown Rochester is home to more than 350 shops, salons, restaurants and professional service businesses; 85% of which are independent merchants. Downtown Rochester’s natural beauty is attributed to the waterways that surround the city and the abundant green space that three parks and two winding trails offer.
