We are Lake Orion, Michigan.

What started as a playground destination back in the 1800’s continues to be a place where you come to enjoy life! It’s where the lakes start and your worries end. Where relaxation finds its way into everyday life.

This is Lake Orion, and we are the Heart & Hub of the Orion Community. Filled with friendly, fun and welcoming people, we’re dedicated to art, music and preserving our historic heritage. You can see visions of this rich heritage being realized today, with a fresh face in our historic downtown, dragons around every corner and new businesses saying YES to economic development.

We invite you to take a stroll through our downtown. Dine with us, listen to music and discover our unique traditions. Whether you’re new or if you already live, work and play here, you’ll love spending time in Lake Orion, where living is a vacation!

A welcoming place

Lake Orion: Where Living is a Vacation

You can tell Lake Orion is a special place because the people born and brought up here actually STAY here. Unlike other communities where people grow up and move away, our residents remain close to home because they appreciate its natural beauty, abundant resources and welcoming sense of community. Many of these people enjoy sharing their skills, connections and expertise by joining one of our committees. 

These committees meet once a month here in Downtown Lake Orion. 

If you would like to volunteer, check out the schedule below.

Organization committee meets the second Tuesday of the month from 8:30 am until 10 am at the DDA offices. 

Promotions committee meets the third Thursday of the month from 8:30 am until 10 am at the DDA offices.

Design committee meets the third Tuesday of the month from 8:45 am until 10 am at ABeanToGo.

Economic Vitality committee meets the fourth Monday of the month from 9:30 am until 11 am at the DDA offices.
