Virtual Drive North on Silver Lake Parkway in Fenton

This is an exciting stretch of road. Yes, I'm going to sound like an old person for a second ... this was almost completely just a field when I was growing up in Fenton. There, I've said it.

Now, Silver Lake Parkway is one of the most bustling commerce areas in Fenton. The beginning stretch of this video below actually starts on Owen Road in front of Fenton High School. This is the area we refer to as "Fast Food Alley." There are now too many businesses along this stretch of road to name them all ... but maybe I'll try to name just a few.

I'm not going to even attempt to list all of the banks and credit unions now located in this part of Fenton ... those living here know how many there are, and the number may suprise those who reside elsewhere. It's a lot.

The original VG's in Fenton used to be located about where this video tour starts, but is now located on the east side of Silver Lake Parkway. Gas stations abound near this convenient entrance/exit point for US-23. Walmart, Little Professor Bookstore, the UPS Store, another car dealership, EB Games, Applebee's, Michael's, Dairy Queen, Buffalo Wild Wings, Home Depot, Blockbuster, Hollywood Video, Classic Pizza, K-mart and Glicks. If you have other favorite vendors on this segment of Fenton, please feel free to mention them in the comments section of this article.

This is part four of the "Streets of Fenton" video tour available exclusively on FentonSays.com. The previous three segments include:

North on Adelaide West on Silver Lake Road
South on Leroy Street
West on Shiawassee

Stay tuned to FentonSays.com for additional "Streets of Fenton" video tours ... coming soon!
