Ann Arbor's Main Street is an ideal place for an evening stroll. There are lots of stores for window shopping, and there is a wide range of excellent restaurant choices. Of course, there are interesting stores and restaurants on the side streets. My personal favorites among the restaurants are The Chop House, Pacific Rim, Real Seafood, Logan, Westside Grill, Cafe...

They need more quaint shops, the main strip has alot of resturants but no little shops or bars. It is nicer in the summer because all of the resturants have table and chairs outside

Nice festivities for 2013 New Year's Eve but getting out was a pain. We had to walk back to hotel (1 hour) in bitterly cold weather.

Love walking around here. Unique shops, along with the staples like Starbucks. Comic book store, tshirt store, cherry product store, etc. A few parking garages nearby. Seen a cool multi-person bike rooming the streets during the summer one time.

Parking and traffic can be a pain to deal with but once you navigate that its well worth going down there. There are lots of different types of restaurants to choose from and many different shops to browse through. Some stuff can be pricey as it is Ann Arbor. You will also get the chance to view many unique looking... More

If you're a book lover, this is the place to visit. Unlike many bookstores, which intimidate upon first encounter, the openness of Literati beckons passersby to come in and browse. It's hard to explain what, precisely, makes it such an inviting place. Is it the space to wander? The friendly staff? Or the fact that it doesn't take itself too... More

What a wonderful family owned bookstore! I love its coziness, the friendly staff, and the fun whimsical "stuff" you find in various places. Leave the owners a message with Scrabble tiles you find on a table. Type a message on one of the many vintage typewriters. Just fun!

Main Street is where the MATURE college crowd goes or maybe people that live in the suburbs. The area is not filled with college dives but with lounges, good restaurants, bars, shops, and a downtown area. Main Street is where I like to spend a Saturday night. Rush Street is a great lounge if you are looking for good cocktails... More

We visited Ann Arbor recently and parked in a parking lot near the down town area. We paid the parking fee. When we returned to the parking lot, an officer was writing us a parking tickect for "backing in" to the parking spot !!!! What difference dose it make to back in or back out ??? Very disappointed in this... More
