Grosse Pointe Shores is considered the “Gold Coast” for it is here that many old estates have been subdivided to provide luxurious, newer homes. The Shores fronts on Lake St. Clair and has one of the nicest municipal parks. It is one half mile wide and three miles long for a total of 1.5 square miles. There are only 3,300 residents, making it the smallest of the Pointes. It is twelve miles from downtown Detroit, ten minutes from Eastland Shopping Center, and about 32 miles or a forty five minute drive from Detroit Metropolitan Airport via I-94. The Grosse Pointe Yacht Club with its distinctive architecture is the only commercial enterprise within the Shore’s city limits. The Club’s 187 foot bell tower is a major landmark. Its members enjoy the use of six clay tennis courts and 308 boat wells.
