About Clinton Township
Located 25 miles outside of downtown Detroit sits the community of Clinton Township, also known as the Charter Township of Clinton. The census-designated place (CDP) remains Michigan's most populous township, maintaining a mix of blue-collar and middle-class residents. Home to the Italian American Cultural Society (IACS), the township values culture, diversity and education, with children attending 30 schools that serve grades K through 12 in six different districts.
Restaurants and Nightlife
Local eateries help offset the number of chain restaurants, providing you with a number of choices when dining out.
If you like buffet-style dining in a clean, well-lit setting, try Teppanyaki Grill and Buffet on South Gratiot Road for traditional Chinese and sushi dishes. If you feel adventurous, add some frog legs to your plate before filling the rest of it with crab legs, kung pao beef and a few spicy tuna hand rolls with avocado. The hard-working, friendly staff and casual atmosphere let you relax as you ponder what to try next. Be sure to come hungry and remember to clean your plate before heading back for seconds or thirds.
For down-home barbecue and true Midwestern hospitality, head to Bad Brad's BBQ on Groesbeck Highway. The rustic atmosphere and traditional smoking methods make this the perfect place to gather with family or friends. Start your meal with the pig candy appetizer before diving into the big pig gig. This family-style dish includes a full slap of ribs, smoked chicken, four different kinds of meat and five large sides. There must be at least four people in your party to order this feast.
If you prefer something more exotic, Shish Kabob Express on South Gratiot Road doesn't disappoint. Specializing in authentic Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food, each dish at this eatery includes the freshest ingredients made to order. The naturally healthy way of life in the Mediterranean means you can dine out without the guilt. Start with the falafel with tahini and hummus appetizer, and then move on to the shish kafta triple, made with your choice of lamb, beef or chicken. Whether in a hurry or in the mood to sit down, this small restaurant provides both take-out and dine-in options.

History and Culture
Originally known as "Huron Township" in 1818, the name was changed to the Charter Township of Clinton in 1824 to eliminate confusion over the location of the Huron River, located south of Detroit. The Michigan Territorial Legislature chose the name after former New York governor DeWitt Clinton for his role in constructing the Erie Canal, which helped numerous settlers journey to Michigan from 1817 to 1823.
Annual events such as the Festival of the Senses highlight the township's commitment to the importance of the arts and artistic advancement, while the annual blood drive sees residents selflessly donating blood in an effort to engage in charitable action for the benefit of others. The Clinton Township Historical Commission encourages residents to learn about early life in the area while preserving its roots and historic significance in Michigan's history.
Clinton Township's close proximity to Interstate 94 and M-59 make getting around town by car easy, whether you prefer to use your own vehicle or hire a private car, taxi or airport shuttle through the Uber app on your smartphone. Plenty of bike-friendly roads and walking paths allow you to cycle or walk to your destination, unless you'd rather take advantage of the SMRT ride public transportation service, which provides numerous routes throughout the day and night, and features discounted rates for students and senior citizens.
When commuting to downtown Detroit, you have plenty of public parking options from which to choose. The central location and reasonable rates make Port Atwater Parking Garage on Beaubien Street a great place to leave your vehicle for a few hours or a full day. The safe location and $6-per-day fee provide you with the security of knowing your car will be well taken care of.
