Adrian Reviews

All Categories
Adrian is a small city in southern Michigan that hosts two private colleges, Adrian College and Sienna Heights University. Adrian has many restaurants right in town and also a movie theater. However, other than that, there is not much to do in town. Adrian is about 45 minutes from both Ann Arbor, MI and Toledo, OH which are both large cities with plenty of entertainment opportunities.
Adrian Michigan is a rural town consisting of many small business owners and a working class which enjoys a sense of community, especially after the recession of 2008. Entertainment, food, and culture have taken root and plan to grow within the years to come and are fostered by three local colleges. Adrian is changing for the positive, providing many opportunities for community service and leadership.
Adrian was a great place to grow up. I lived in a small neighborhood in the Historic District. As I got older I wanted to move away, come to find out I am still here. Many things have changed but overall it is becoming a town that is growing on me. Adrian is starting to get bigger and better. I enjoy living in a small town but still have things to do.
