Monroe, Michigan is an active and welcoming community in Monroe County just 14 miles north of Toledo, Ohio and 25 miles south of Detroit. Home to just over 20,000 people within its city limits, it is part of a much larger statistical area known as the Monroe Metropolitan Area which is home to over 150,000 residents. Centrally located between two of the largest metro areas in the region, it is a popular destination for those looking for a slower pace but an easy commute and thousands of tourists annually as well.
A city with a long history, Monroe is believed to have been settled by Europeans as early as the 1780’s however, the region had long before been settled by local Native American tribes, specifically the Potawatomi tribe. Of strategic importance to the Detroit area during the War of 1812, it is this history as well as its natural features and modern conveniences that make it a popular place to live and visit throughout the year.
The Raisin River is one of its most popular natural areas and one of the most popular historic attractions as well. The River Raisin National Battlefield Park was created to honor the past history of the region. Site of the devastating 1813 Battles of Frenchtown in the War of 1812, this popular national park site offers living history and tours throughout the year.
