Located in Washtenaw County, Michigan, the Township of Scio provides the perfect combination of small town comfort and city slicker amenities. With a modest population of just over 15,000, the Township of Scio is the kind of place where you can really get to know your neighbors. Buying a home in the Township of Scio means you can be sure a familiar face and friendly smile are easy to find. Plus, it’s just ten minutes west of Ann Arbor’s attractions and events, such as the Leslie Science and Nature Center, the Ann Arbor Film Festival and the Ann Arbor Summer Art Fair.

Shopping and Dining

Scio Township residents benefit from an abundance of high quality shopping and dining options, all within minutes from home. The Miller Road Park and Ride station makes it easy to spend the day in downtown Ann Arbor without worrying about downtown parking. Just hop on the 12 B line to visit the shops and restaurants in historic Kerrytown, with its old brick buildings, cobblestone walkways and old-time market feel. Then take a walk up Main Street and lose yourself in its eclectic boutiques, music venues and eateries. For a more traditional mall experience, visit the Briarwood Mall, which boasts a wide selection of brand name retailers, including Gap, Apple, Coldwater Creek, Hollister, Macy’s and JC Penny. Get in touch with the area’s German roots at Metzger’s Restaurant, which has been serving the best homemade German fare in the region since 1928.

Parks and Recreation

The natural beauty surrounding the Township of Scio is one of the many perks to buying Scio Township real estate. With no limit to the hiking, kayaking, mountain biking and boating opportunities, it’s not a question of what outdoor activities you can enjoy, but how much you can pack into a weekend! Ann Arbor and surrounding communities are fortunate to have some of the nicest parks around. Take a picnic to Delhi Metro Park or walk along the Dexter-Huron Metro Park Nature Trail and see what wildlife you can spot. Visit the Matthaei Botanical Gardens & Nichols Arboretum at the University of Michigan, and see just how Ann Arbor earns the word “arbor” in its name. For a lazy day on a lazy river, visit the Argo Canoe Livery, which allows visitors to explore the picturesque, tree-lined banks of the Huron River, either in a single-person kayak or a canoe built for two.
