A typical old United States city, where everyone has so little to do that they bitch on Facebook about the town all the time. Full of people who were here when there was a buffalo farm on the corner and people who moved here because they heard it was whiter than white. Filled with hickville homes with plastic for insulation on the windows or McMansions that most can't afford. The big happening in the town is a trashy pumpkinfest once a year with a parade that literally is 2-3 hours of everyone and everything in the town on display, including 5 dance schools (with most of the teeny kids wearing so little), 2 matching bands, The town mayor, and lots of unheard of organizations. The town hosts 11 pizza take outs, 7 car parts stores , 3 or maybe it's 4 resale shops and little else. The people of South Lyon go into a tail spin for month when something like a Tim Hortons is being built. 95% of the population attends church although if you read what they say on social media you would never think it was a religion based community.
I live in South Lyon because it doesn't have any of "those " people and it still has old town America values.

An extremely white town filled with racists rednecks. Just the mere mention of Detroit fills the residents with fear. Main points of interest include a faggety little parade during Pumpkinfest, a shoddy little museum where the train used to run through. 2 high schools which are of vastly different qualities one having walls you can break through, the other recently built has plasma tvs and overall better facilities.

The one main actual amazing part of South Lyon is the South Lyon Hotel, originally a hotel it is now a kick-ass restaurant all but dedicated to its late manager Paul Baker.

All in all a place you cruise by on the Highway.
Between Mt.Brighton and Walmart (New Hudson) lays the terrible land know as South Lyon!

Ex. Confederate flags are flown in South Lyon despite few people in it knowing what century the Civil War took place.

Was once Hicksville until all the little townspeople fucked and made babies, and now its a mix between wannabe novi preps and poser punks, along with a whole load of old people who complain all damn day because of all the changes due to their own kids, and then write letters to the newspaper- thinking people actually read that shit. Hey if you dont like it here, MOVE DUMBASS!!!!!!
