Lots of fun bars & restaurants catering to alumni and older students at U of Michigan. Lots of new places opening and better than hanging out at the college dives closer to campus.

Great local culture on Main Street. High end dining, low end dining, and everything in between. Coffee? You bet! Tea, you bet. Books, nooks, novelties, strange and beautiful - all there. Art. Almost art. Never intended to be art. You'll find it there and what a magnificent place to observe people. Spend a day and enjoy the show.

Everything you could want is in this area. We had a great time walking around looking in the shoppes and catching a bite.

Main Street is a very busy and lively place. There are numerous restaurants to pick from and a lot of unique shopping as well. A great alternative to a boring indoor mall. There are art galleries, bookstores, bars, restaurants...check out the M-Den for Michigan items (one of several locations). This street gets very crowded after a football game and you... More

Great place to visit in all seasons. We went on Halloween-- the stores were bustling with warmth and little kids trick or treating in the stores (this was a town sponsored safe holiday event). The stores provide a range of artsy, unique items to high-end technical athletic gear to Life is Good apparel. Food choices are amazing--from craft brews to... More

Ann Arbor was one of the best places to visit. Downtown has so many little shops, and side walk cafe's, people are super friendly and it was a nice day when we went. It's a true Gem .

We came to Ann Arbor for the first time, not knowing what to expect. We are from Ithaca, a much smaller college town. Ann Arbor is great! Restaurants, shops activity. Main Stret is great with a lot going on.

Even though its in a small town like Ann Arbor, youd always find it full of life! I once saw a car show on it in july, where people had brought their antiques for exhibition(there was a lambo too).. there was an art fair there too in july, i just loved that. Otherwise, this street has got everything. bars, restaurants,... More

When i went to school here Main Street was quiet and reserved for locals and seniors. Now it is a thriving scene made up of shop, restaurants and bars of every type, flavor and fashion. It is is a destination unto itself at any time of day. Check out Palio's rooftop. Limited menu but awesome scene!
