State Street runs along the perimeter of the central campus. It is the main walking route to the football stadium, and on a Game Day that is an experience not to be missed. At other times, this is a street with a number of places to eat, drink and shop,

Used to love State Street and still a very cool place to walk. Went to Noodles for lunch, Stucchi's for ice cream and walked through the Nickel's Arcade. Purchased early Christmas gifts at the Caravan Gift Shop! Enjoyed it just as much as when I was a student here!

It has past for this year but one should start planning for next years event. You don't have to worry about parking, it is every where. The more you pay to park, the shorter the walk to the fair. The fair isn't just on State Street, it is all over Ann Arbor and worth the walk to see everything. And... More

Lots of students and many shops to go through. Also places to eat. Biggest drawback is parking. I am not good trying to get in very tight spots on the street. Also parking fees are done by credit card which I had to ask a local how to do that. I am sure there are parking lots but if you... More

State street is a great place to spend an afternoon exploring. The last time we were here it was graduation weekend and the street was crazy with students and their families, it was still a great day. The shops are cool and seem to be a little more geared towards the student life. The restaurants are great and there are... More
