Dexter Community Guide
Founded in 1824, Dexter, Michigan is a small village located roughly 10 miles northwest of Ann Arbor. This village’s total population is just above 4,000 making Dexter the perfect location for those looking for the small-town America home.
Downtown Dexter, the heart of the village, is picturesque and historic. It is home to several terrific restaurants and a variety of shops and boutiques. The area also offers a variety of parks with something for everyone: a three-mile paved path for biking, in-line skating and running, basketball courts, volleyball courts, tennis courts, shuffleboard, fishing and more.
Dexter’s residents are mainly commuters to the Ann Arbor and Detroit area who want to get away from the “busyness” of the city and relax at home.
