A visit to the city is incomplete unless you drive through this street .Though the parking is not easy to find , its worthwhile to stop nearby for Lunch/ brunch / snack in the near by restaurant. We can also see the down town buildings , nearby.

Fun, busy street along west side of campus. Lots of things students need including bookstore and coffee shops. Wish city would require new chain stores like drugstores keep old historic fronts. In only 5 years CVS, Wallgreens and Starbucks have popped up

State street is great for shopping, eating & people watching. There are many food options from $-$$$ (if you're looking for $$$$ head to Main St), and you'll find cute shops as well. I'd say Main street has more options for shopping, but State Street isn't too bad with Pitaya, Urban Outfitters, and tons of places to get UM gear.... More

We have spent many afternoons and evenings strolling State and the neighborhood. There are places to appeal to all ages, but especially to students and their visiting parents. We especially like the wide choices in restaurants and Encore Records.

Love this place, lots to see, people everywhere.. I will say if you have small children just watch out for the homeless, they are intoxicated, and rude.

We were in Ann Arbor, in advance of a concert at the Hill Auditorium. We got there early, so we strolled along State Street. There are so many places on that venue to talk about, specialty shops, restaurants, bars, theaters. We ended up at the Redhawk for a drink and a bowl of Seafood Gumbo. The bar staff were friendly...
