Sterling Heights, MI

The city of Sterling Heights is located in Macomb County, Michigan. It is one of Detroit’s core suburbs and is only 16 miles from Downtown Detroit.

Sterling Heights’s motto is: “To Strive on Behalf of All”. “Heights” was added to the end of the name so that it would not be mistaken for the city of Sterling located in Arenac County.
