About Palmer Woods
Palmer Woods has a suburban even though it's sandwiched between the urban sprawl of west and east Detroit. This neighborhood is an urban oasis with trails for biking and hiking, and the city's most diverse architectural styles along tree-lined streets. Community amenities include playgrounds, tennis courts, and a public golf course. It also has a lively gay and nightlife scene, including Woodward Cocktail Bar, the oldest gay bar in Detroit. Entertainment options abound on either side of Woodward Avenue, but keep your GPS or directions handy—a wrong turn here can steer you into no-man's land.

Cadillacs blaring Motown once lined these streets, but Detroit is moving on from its Motor City days with turnpikes turned to bike trails, pioneering urban farms around Eastern Market, and bargain dining and drinking in interethnic Greektown—a far cry from the 8 Mile urban jungle of Eminem rap fame, though you can still find Tigers in Comerica Park and Lions in Ford Field.
