Lake Orion MI is a quaint small and historic community in Oakland County. Home to fewer than 4,000 residents, Lake Orion is considered both a bedroom community as well as a popular resort town thanks to its ample recreational areas and attractions. First settled by Europeans in the early 1800’s, Lake Orion was incorporated as a village in 1859. Lake Orion has long been considered an ideal vacation destination in southern Michigan so much so in fact that in the early 20th century, they opened an amusement park on Park Island. The area grew so popular that it began being referred to by some as the “Paris of Detroit” in an effort to draw more tourists.
While there are still many activities and attractions to choose from, by far the most well-known attractions today in the area are those related to nature, most noted being Lake Orion itself. Lake Orion is a 482 acre lake known for its easy access and great fishing. An all-sports lake, Lake Orion is the 7th largest lake in Oakland County. Camping, relaxing, biking, picnicking, hiking and just enjoying the outdoors are just a few of the many ways residents and visitors to Lake Orion spend their long summer days.
Miles and miles of trails, popular parks, lakes, a beautiful downtown area and many fun annual festivals and events make staying active easy in this beautiful city. Unfortunately for those dealing with symptoms related to inflammatory or rheumatic conditions, getting out and enjoying these things can be painful. Dr. Dowd and the Arthritis Institute of Michigan are here to help.
