There was even a demonstration by about 250 people on... More

I would definitely recommend browsing some of the shops. All of Main Street has a lot of amazing restaurants. At night the trees are lit up with white twinkle lights.

Ann Arbor's Main street is like a 5th avenue for New York. You can find a good food and shopping. Almost all major events: AA art fair, parades, etc., all take place at the Main street

Whether visiting the University of Michigan, its many institutes, medical centers and hospitals, or the businesses that have arisen because of the presence of the University, your visit must include a walk down Main Street.
