some solid independent and chain restaurants catering to students and faculty at the U of Michigan. Ashley's has a nice Beer list and has been around for a while. I would check out the Arcade also for old-school shopping...been around for 100+ years...

We spent a Saturday afternoon strolling around on State Street to get a feel of the area around the university. So many interesting shops and places to eat. Would have liked to have more time for exploring and eating though. Will definitely go there if I ever find myself in Ann Arbor again.

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
