Ann Arbor, MI

show info

Ann Arbor may be the quintessential college town.  In 1837 the University of Michigan moved the 35 miles westward from Detroit, and no one quite expected how large it would become. Today, it has an urban area population of about a quarter of a million people, and that doesn't include the over 41,000 students at UM. The city is consistently ranked in the top percentile of places to live in the U.S.

The Ann Arbor Art Fairs

<p>The Ann Arbor Art Fairs date back to 1960, when the first Ann Arbor Street Art Fair, The Original was held.

Altogether, they represent one of the largest art fairs in the United States, and attract more than 500,000 visitors each year.</p>

Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library

<p>Gerald R. Ford began keeping his official papers in Ann Arbor long before his presidency; while still a member of Congress, Ford donated official documents to the University of Michigan's Bentley Historical Library. After serving as president, Ford offered to donate his papers to a library on the University of Michigan's campus. However, the library is administered by the National Archives and Records Administration. Fun fact: Though Ford's Presidential Library is in Ann Arbor, the Gerald R. Ford Museum is not. It's in Grand Rapids</p>
