Livonia is a city in the suburbs of Detroit. It was named after Livonia in New York and Pennsylvania, which in turn drew the name from Livonia in Latvia and Estonia. There are several traditional neighborhoods in the city. In 1835, when the borders were first recorded in legislature, the woodlands had been cleared and dairy farms and orchards established. It remained rural for more than a century. In the 1940s General Motors set up factories in the area and in 1949, a race track was built. In order to benefit from the revenues from the race track, Livonia became a city in 1950. Certain attractions may be temporarily closed or require advance reservations. Some restaurants are currently offering pickup only. Hours/availability may have changed.

Also known as Greenmead Historical Park, this property was first developed by Joshua Simmons in 1826. He bought 160 acres of land and erected a small log cabin. In 1841, he had the Greek Revival house built that remains on the property to this day. He acquired additional land and built several outbuildings. He died in 1882 as the wealthiest landowner in Livonia. Nine of the 11 outbuildings are still standing and additional buildings have been moved to Greenmead. The 3.2 acre park was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.

Roperti's Turkey Farm is an authentic link to Livonia's rural past. The landmark farm has been sold off piecemeal but five acres remain. An Italian immigrant started the farm in 1949 with 50 birds. His daughter and two grandsons run the farm now and each year they process 4000 birds for Thanksgiving and 500 for Christmas. The work starts in Aug when the 9 week old chicks are delivered to the farm which is open from October to Christmas Eve. The free range birds are free of steroids and preservatives so are healthier to eat, cook faster and taste better.

Sheesh is a restaurant that serves Mediterranean cuisine, predominantly Lebanese dishes. The owners are chefs, managers and employees that worked for the La Shish chain of Middle Eastern restaurants. When the chain closed its doors, this team pooled their finances and skills and opened a similar restaurant in Livonia. They are all immigrants and understand the needs of the large Middle Eastern population that now lives in the Detroit area. Shawarmas, kebabs, falafel and mezze platters are some of the flavorful items patrons can consume on the premises or take away.
