Ann Arbor Reviews

Ann Arbor is one of my favorite cities in Michigan. What I like the most about Ann Arbor is how high people's spirits are here. When you go to a local business, the warm welcoming and interaction you receive is unlike any other city I've encountered. People here care about their well-being and health. This is reflected through the business's, local events, celebrations, gatherings centered around meditation and spiritually uplifting practices as well as healthy food business's such as Ann Arbor's People's Food Co-op. I love this city for the active downtown life as well as the many nature spots available. I've grown to be connected to an amazing community of people here and I am grateful every day I have the privilege of living in Ann Arbor!
Ann Arbor is an incredible melting pot of cultures, ethnicities, interests, and lifestyles. Being located surrounding the University of Michigan, the town in vibrant with student activism. However, it is also home to many families and young professionals. The inclusive and friendly nature of the town charms any visitor.

Traffic can be heavy, especially on football Saturdays; but the positive energy of Ann Arbor makes up for any lost time in traffic!
My experience in Ann Arbor has been picturesque. I have been living here for 11 months now. I couldn't ask for a better city to live in. Living by the biggest sports stadium in the nation has been pure bliss. Having two universities close by is also a benefit; the University of Michigan and Eastern Michigan Univeristy. This city is youthful, energetic, and full of opportunities. Notorious for being a "hippie city" so you won't have a hard time finding a local food co-op, yoga studios, spiritual gatherings, and much more! Oh and I can't forget that were well-known for being eco-friendly.
