Farmington Hills is an affluent community in Southeastern Michigan. It is the largest city in Oakland County in the U.S. state of Michigan. Its population was 82,111 at the 2000 census. It is an upscale, northwestern suburb that lies on the border of Metropolitan Detroit, which in turn is also 33 miles (53 km) northeast of Downtown Ann Arbor.

Oakland County is touted as one of the wealthiest counties in the Midwestern United States, with Farmington Hills being one of the county's top family income areas. In 2007, CNNMoney.com listed the Farmington Hills area as number 55 in their Best Places to Live survey. Farmington Hills consistently ranks as one of the safest cities in the United States, as well as in the State of Michigan. In 2010, the area ranked as the 30th safest city in America.[3] [4]

Although the two cities have separate services and addresses, Farmington and Farmington Hills are often thought of as the same community. Features of the community include a recently renovated downtown, shops, a vintage cinema, numerous restaurants, exotic car dealerships, art galleries, and one of Oakland County's largest public parks, Heritage Park. There are many historical sites, such as 'The Longacre House' of Farmington Hills, and 'The Governor Warner Mansion'. Both cities are served by the Farmington Area School District, which is one of the top rated public school systems in the state. Farmington Hills serves as a major business center for the greater Detroit area, and possesses the biggest business campus in the county outside of Troy. Due to its shared city borders with some of the wealthiest communities in the region such as West Bloomfield, Franklin Village, Orchard Lake, and Novi, the community's real estate values tend to be higher than those in the city of Farmington.
