About Ann Arbor
The Ann Arbor area is one of the state’s rare jewels: a small, friendly town with big-city sophistication; a world-class educational and high-tech research center nestled in a quintessential college town; a close-knit community of charming neighborhoods with a rich mix of cultures.
For complete information on Ann Arbor and all it has to offer, please visit Destination Ann Arbor.
Although geographically small, the area is perhaps most renowned for its globally-inspired cultural offerings. From exclusive art exhibits to performances by jazz legends, there are abundant opportunities to enjoy arts and culture. You’ll find more than 30 independent bookstores, dozens of unique galleries, and a variety of top-notch museums all within the downtown area — including the distinguished University of Michigan Museum of Art.
Dining aficionados will appreciate the nearly 300 restaurants within a 20-mile radius of Ann Arbor, including the famous Zingerman’s Deli. Options range from old-fashioned Italian bistros to trendy, contemporary American restaurants. Many offer al fresco dining in the warmer months, which, when combined with the array of jazz and dance clubs in the area, makes downtown Ann Arbor a vibrant destination for nightlife.
Described as an urban oasis, the Ann Arbor area is also the perfect four season destination for outdoor enthusiasts. You’ll discover golf courses designed by legendary architects, trails groomed for hiking and cross-country skiing, some of the best canoeing and kayaking in southeastern Michigan along the twelfth nationally recognized water trail — the Huron River.
