Travel Tips for Ypsilanti
Living in the midwest
I teach at Eastern Michigan University, but am originally from Los Angeles. Therefore, it was important to me to live near where i worked for 2 reasons. My lifetime quota for traffic was filled when I left LA, and conserving energy should be a priority. So I live one mile from the school and often ride my bike there. But, though this is nice, it is not well received. No one rides a bike in Ypsilanti, or most of SE Michigan for that matter. Detroit is motor city, and though it is dying a horrible death, it could be saved if people thought beyond the short but glorious past of this part of America.
Ypsilanti - a city unto itself
"Ypsilanti - the College Years and beyond"
I attended school here first in 1990...Eastern Michigan University, where I majored in Theatre Arts and minored in Literature, finally finishing in 1998. After that time, I stayed in Ypsi until meeting this girl and I moved to her place with her for a year (down in a little city called Addison)...well that did not work out, so I moved BACK to Ypsi again, and have been here ever since. But always looking to break out to one of the coasts to further my acting career! lol
Ypsilanti was founded in 1825 by Judge Augustus Woodward, John Steward and William Harwood. They named their new village after the Greek Patrior General Demetrius Ypsilanti (a Greek flag and statue of the general still stand in front of the city's watertower on Washtenaw). The city grew as the railroad came to town and US 12 was opened, connecting Detroit and Chicago.
Ypsilanti is home to Eastern Michigan University. It sits just a few miles east of neighboring Ann Arbor and a short drive west of Detroit. A very youthful city, being a college campus, and it also attracts a lot of local young Ann Arborites, as rent prices are much cheaper. Home to a few fun summer festivals, including the The Michigan Elvisfest held the second weekend in July and the Summer Beer Festival held in the end of July.
