Museums, restaurants, clothing stores, pinball Pete, movie theater, student union, coffee houses, you name it you will find it on State Street! Lots of street parking and lots of student roaming the street. Amazing!

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.
