Ann Arbor, Michigan
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.While the university employs over 30,000 people and is, by far, the largest company in town, Pfizer has a large operation there as do a number of high-tech and web companies who rely on the research and development coming from UM.
The city is consistently ranked in the top percentile of places to live in the U.S.
Down By The River
The landscape is low, there are many tree lined streets and interesting terrain near the Huron River. When beginning your search for an Ann Arbor apartment, you'll want to consider a few things. Everything is centered around the downtown area and along the river. UM straddles the river near the downtown area.
The neighborhoods adjacent to downtown are older, pedestrian friendly and full of condos and loft spaces. As one ventures further out from downtown, the areas will vary. There are more contemporary buildings as well as more suburban ones.
There is a wealth of things to do in Ann Arbor many of which center around or are sponsored by UM. All arts are well represented. Theatre, performing arts, visual arts and more. Public art is interesting and accessible. While there are 147 public parks in the city, the main sport are UM teams.
Football and basketball are the most popular spectator sports but virtually every type sport is represented. Once in your Ann Arbor apartment, you'll find activities both on the campus and off.
Forget Fast Food
You'll find eating out in Ann Arbor has some unexpected bonuses. There are relatively few fast food chain type places (there was a McDonald's near UM but it closed in 2003), but a wide variety of locally owned cafes and restaurants.
The best breakfast spot in town is Angelo's, the best vegetarian place is Cafe Verde, or Zingerman's Roadhouse for wonderful home cooking. There's no doubt that whatever Ann Arbor apartment you choose, there will be some very good restaurants nearby.
Nightlife is especially concentrated in the downtown area. You will find college type bars of all kinds. From sports pub type places to more sophisticated martini bars where law students may hang out. For a real night out of drinking and dancing, check out Studio 4 for dancing, the Blind Pig for local talent, and the Firefly club for jazz and blues.
You can't go wrong with any of them.
