I was here looking at the campus and took a stroll. State street is a nice place for a walk. Lots of shops and the old theater. A nice place.

Lots of variety of stores, shops, bars and restaurants in this area, making it ideal to stroll around and spend some time. Right in the heart of the U of M campus.

The State Theater opened in 1942, during the darkest days of World War Two, after two years of construction by theater empresario W. S. Butterfield. Designed by Howard Crane in the Art Deco style, it was an uplifting experience in entertainment for townies and University students and faculty. It fell on hard times with the advent of television and shut down in the 1980's. Eventually it was purchased by The Michigan Theater, just down Liberty Street, and totally renovated. It now has four small theaters, on the second and third floors of the building. They are still ironing out problems in the way they sell and take tickets. The movie selection is spotty with a lot of good films but too many mediocre ones. I don't fell safe in Theaters 3 and 4, especially when I have a seat against the wall, as getting out in case of fire would be hard for an athlete, let alone for a senior citizen. Be warned that the first 2 or 3 rows are way too close to enjoy the films. Street parking is hard to find but there is a University parking structure on the street behind, which is accessible via a narrow pathway between two store just to the north.…

Worth the travel to spend several hours at the Fair. Park at Briarwood mall and take shuttle bus. They run regular so no long wait. Lots and lots of art to peruse and buy. Plus, if hungry, you get to pick from some nice restaurants.
