Romeo Area Insight

  • This quiet village in Macomb County has a total area of about 2 square miles and is bordered by Bruce, Washington, Armada, and Ray Townships and is still under an hour’s drive to Detroit. Founded in 1839, the early settlers decided to name the village Romeo because they wanted a name with a romantic heritage. Every February 14th since 1994, the village offers a dual-postmark with Juliette, Georgie as a nod to William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliette.

    As you approach the village, you will pass countless Midwest farms and apple orchards. These rural roads give way to a charming downtown with streets lined with well-maintained Victorian-era homes. The homes and businesses are well-preserved and have original features like tin ceilings dating back to the Civil War. In October, you must check out Terror on Tillson Street. Residents pull out all the stops and decorate their homes and yards for Halloween, drawing crowds from all over the state. It's a great experience for everyone.

    The village also hosts the annual Lavender Festival every summer and the Peach Festival during Labor Day weekend. The Peach festival began in 1931 to promote local orchards and features a 5K/10K run, car show, three parades, craft show, kids’ fest, and carnival rides.
    Romeo Schools are found just outside of the village limits and feature one high school, one middle school, and five elementary schools. Notably, Michigan’s own Kid Rock grew up in Romeo and attended the schools there.

    With its serene country setting but proximity to major markets, Romeo is the perfect combination of rural town charm on the edge of metro Detroit.
  • Founded in 1838, the historic Village of Romeo is a quiet small town, with storybook charm, tree-lined streets, historic delights, and wonderful main street shopping. This is a place you will want to raise a family and retire in! Homes range from $120,000 to just over $1 million and all enjoy this wonderful small town with great schools.

    First named “Indian Village”, the settlement that became Romeo was originally inhabited by Chippewa Indians! The history here holds so many heart warming stories, you'll want to be sure to ask local businesses to share some with you!
