Livonia is home to the Livonia Hockey Association, which is the largest amateur hockey organization in the state of Michigan. The city is also famous for its tremendously large soccer club, with approximately 1,300 members.
On the downside of things, this city is experiencing shrinkage, partly due to skyrocketing crime rates. Livonia has a higher crime rate than 73% of the state’s cities and towns.
