Lake Shore Drive
Between Fisher and Nine Mile Roads, along Lake St. Clair, Grosse Pointe
Every year, the homes on Lake Shore Drive light up with spectacular displays and decorations. It’s gained a reputation around metro Detroit as a fantastic way to be blown away for free. And the property owners of these beautiful homes never fail to deliver.
