    Nicholas Arboretum

    by Yorick12 Written May 28, 2005

    Nicholas Arboretum, lovingly known as "the Arb" is a great place to enjoy a summer day. It 123 acres of nature trails and gardens. If you're unfimiliar with the Arb make sure to check the map at the entrance, it's huge and very easy to get lost.

    University of Michigan

    University of Michigan

    The University of Michigan's huge campus makes up a large part of Ann Arbor. The campus is pretty historic and beautiful. You can take a campus tour of the university and its buildings. There are actually three campuses: Central Campus, North Campus, and Athletic Campus. The Michigan Stadium is where the football games are played, and Michigan has an excellent football team.

    Michigan Football Game

    by annarborsef Written Jun 30, 2003

    While the game itself may or may not be so interesting, the neighborhood surrounding the stadium is transformed into a big festival and outdoor barbeque. And win or lose, the people really make the most of the atmosphere and fellowship.

    Adjacent Pioneer Hiigh School becomes a sea of campers the night before a game. Tents, and children playing and thousands of cars overtake sections of the nearby university golf course. As the stadium capacity (107,501) is nearly the population of the city, be prepared for some traffic before and after the game.

    University of Michigan Central Campus

    by annarborsef Updated Jun 30, 2003

    It's really wonderful to walk about the stately buildings and beautiful landscape. Excellent shopping and dining available at adjacent State St and S University areas. UM Museum of Art, Kelsey Museum (archaeology) and UM Exhibit Museum of Natural History provide impressive collections, and all are within a short walking distance of each other.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    From mid-June into early July, the city has a summer music festival, held at Top of the Park, next to the Power Center theater. There are paid performances every night inside the Power Center, while the performances located outside are free. Many performers are regional, and range from reggae to swing to rockabilly.

    Tradition. Victory.

    Spend money with downtown merchants and then go home. Traffic is bad enough
    as it is, without you and your SUV hanging around. And please, please watch the
    football game on TV.
    One unique quality here is the alacrity with which the police will home in on your
    vehicle and gleefully ticket it if you park inappropriately. It's just our little way
    of saying, 'Thanks for visiting. Now, go home.'

    Take your time on walking in this area, well, if you don't feel cold! It's pretty when you walk on the streets there, it's a wonderful campus, and you will feel very comfortable while you're walking! ;)

    University of Michigan is one of the largest public institutions in the US and is very highly regarded, both in academics and athlethics, Some great places to walk around and explore are State Street, The Diag, and the Law Quad. Just ask anyone who looks like a student where the places are.

    Museum of Art

    The Ann Arbor Museum of Art, isn't the Louvre, but it's worthwhile visit with lots of special activities. For example, VT member paxgothica enjoys the monthly (free) tea ceremonies that are held in the Japanese wing. There's a different tea cememoney each month with a host to explain what's happening as the ceremony takes place. The current temporary exhibit celebrates the work of Picasso.

    College football with The Wolverines
    The Wolverines are the football team for the University of Michigan and consistantly one of the best in the country. In the autumn, it's often difficult to find tickets for a game, but catch it with a huge helping of cheering bar fans from one of the many pubs in Ann Arbor.

    Ann Arbor has very nice architecture, as far as I noticed there isn't any tall buildings and the downtown is really pleasant. Also you can find lots of old houses, churches, cafes etc.
