Welcome To Tecumseh

Calling itself “The Best of the Burbs”, Tecumseh is a small, affluent and proud community that’s very popular. It’s one of the best connected burbs as it’s on the border with Windsor and just 20 minutes to the Detroit border. The small town charm abounds with everything you’d ever need either in the town or a short drive away. Its location, amenities, and safety make it a very attractive option if you’re considering relocating.

Quality of Life

Tecumseh has 24,000 residents but is booming - literally - with new development. It’s popular because you can live a small town life with all the amenities you’d ever dream of (professional sports teams and concerts) just a short drive away in Detroit. It’s also close to the 401, with a drive to Toronto just 3.5 hours away.

Tecumseh offers low taxes, a high level of community pride and some excellent choices in educating your kids.
