Things to do in Ann Arbor

An out-of-town friend asked for suggestions about things to do during a visit to Ann Arbor. Here are my suggestions to him:

  • The University of Michigan Art Museum is very nice:
  • Ann Arbor has an iconic, world-class deli, Zingermans:
  • If it's a nice day, you might enjoy a walk in the Matthaei Botanical Gardens & Nichols Arboretum:
  • The downtown area, especially Main Street, has a many nice shops and restaurants.
  • If you want a fairly upscale dinner, the Earle is very good. And they have some nice specials during happy hour 5-8 weekdays.
  • Kerrytown is a nice indoor collection of shops and a market: There's a nice farmer's market there too Saturdays and Wednesdays from 7am-3pm.
  • If you're looking to see a show, you could check the Ark , the Kerrytown Concert House or Performance Network
