I love Ann Arbor! It's a lively city with a small-town feel. Having the University of Michigan down the street creates endless opportunities for concerts, events, and night life. The philanthropic scene is booming and small businesses are everywhere! Everyone here is happy and excited about life, passionate about this city and very environmentally-conscious and involved in the community. It is a truly wonderful place.

Ann Arbor is an absolutely great place to live or visit in your spare time. This beautiful college town has so much to offer, whether you're here for a UM visit (Go Blue!) or it's a pit stop on your way to Detroit! There are restaurants from almost every type of cuisine imaginable, all at different price points. There are parks spread throughout the city and trails where you'll find a steady stream of runners and walkers. There is a hustle and bustle here that strikes the perfect balance of busy but not overwhelming.
Ann Arbor is an amazing town to live in. My overall experience has been a very good one. Having grown up here in Ann Arbor, and now being a college graduate from Michigan State University, I was able to experience all the great events and activities thrown by the city. The art fair in July is one of my favorites, even though its always brutally hot, its amazing to see the amount of artists as well as beautiful and very interesting pieces of art. I feel that it represents the city as a whole; Ann Arbor is a very whimsical supportive place to live in and i've loved every moment of it!
I gave it 4 stars, not 5, only because like most great cities...theyre great yea but they are also not perfect. There is crime in Ann Arbor and sometimes not all agree and fights and protests occur, especially due to the University of Michigan Students who are sharing the city.
Overall great music, food, bars, drinks, and town
