Crazy crowded, chaotic, everything you could think of for a major college town. From shopping to Pubs and restaurants. Even just for walking around and people watching. The people watching alone is great.

Main Street is fantastic. We just visited Ann Arbor, again, in August, and had a wonderful time strolling Main, stopping at shops, attractions and restaurants. Dining outside in the summer on Main is an outstanding experience!

There are lots of wonderful shops and restaurants in this area. We love Rock, Paper, Sissors, Peaceable Kingdom, and Cherry Republic and many other places to poke around in and choose gifts. There is so much choice here and the items are unique. Highly recommended!

This Street inspired the Bob Seger song is still two lane with trees. It continues to evolve and includes old and new establishments. Main Street is wonderful to visit, with interesting shops (Peaceable Kingdom), high-end restaurants, quality furniture store (Kings Chosen), a Shinola store and a store specializing in cherries. 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
