We have been visiting here for years. Shops are always interesting. Sad to see some long time favorites have closed, but look forward to see what is coming.

Main St. is great for checking out small shops; lots of variety including art, decor, Univeristy gear, clothes, etc. The restaurants are tasty and often have patio seating, but can be a bit overpriced. A lot of traffic and can be hard to find parking (best bet are parking decks nearby).

Art, coffee, food all the best! If you are in A2, you have to check out Main Street! Vault of Midnight comic shop is the bomb! Dinner at Palio's. Coffee at Espersso Royale after and maybe even ice cream at Kilwin's. I love Main Street :)

Main Street is a great place to shop & people watching. You'll also find great restaurants, some of which are extremely pricey, but have the food to back it up. If you're in AA, it's worth the visit, even if you choose to eat elsewhere.

Main street is nice because there are so many places to eat and good people watching. It is pretty casual and safe, unlike many main streets in other cities. It is a must to check out if you're in Ann Arbor, but make sure to venture off some of the streets off of main downtown as there are a lot... More

I was very surprised how hip the downtown main street area was. Parking was abundant and everything was in a quick walk from where you parked. Nice upscale restaurants and cool shops. Enjoyed walking with my wife and just having fun. The weather is breaking and I am sure that they will be fixing it up down there real quick.... More

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.
