Bob Seeger got it totally wrong. This is a great place to hang out. Not as many students, as You would see, closer to campus.

Being from Michigan, I am biased but Ann Arbor is on of the great college towns. Surrounding the beautiful University of Michigan campus, the streets are vibrant, diverse and full of restaurants and shops for every budget and taste. Students are everywhere and you can feel the electricity in the air. The streets are perfect for strolling and people-watching. Grab... More

Close to U of M it's a good place to take a relaxing walk and do window-shopping. Some shops are interesting! e.g. the M Den

Charming shopping and eating street. Parking isn't as difficult in this area as one might expect. Lots of restaurants and boutiques. Get your U of MI t-shirts. Great white lights for the holidays.

Had several hours to kill in Ann Arbor so spent the time discovering downtown. This downtown is wonderful! Very walkable. Lots of shops and restaurants that are locally owned and unique. Whatever you're looking for, you can likely find it here. Funky and youthful vibe due to U of M and it's much appreciated. Not stodgy, but warm and welcoming.... More

We thoroughly enjoy strolling Main Street. It is especially good at the holidays because of the unique gifts you can find in the many locally-owned shops. The first Friday in December is Midnight Madness and shops are open until 12:00 a.m. Restaurants abound and offer a variety of tastes to explore. Ann Arbor is a model others could only dream...

In a short distance, you will have a too many different restaurants and nice stores. Like to walk and if you get hungry you will have choices

Enough shops and galleries to walk through. Enough coffee shops to stop and refresh oneself. There are interesting buildings along the way as well.
