Livonia’s economy isn’t based around anything in particular but rather a bunch of things including restaurants, retail stores, colleges, schools, churches, and parks. When it comes to food and shopping, residents and tourists go to Laurel Park Place, an upscale shopping mall with over 70 restaurants and stores. The city itself does not have many points of interest, however, Livonia is ideally located halfway between downtown Detroit and Ann Arbor, which means museums, sporting events, and casinos are only 20 to 30 minutes away. Some of the parks in the city include Rotary Park, Bicentennial Park, Devonaire Park, and Mies Park.
