Home of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor is the intellectual center of the state. There are frequent cultural events, many ethnic restaurants and colorful shops. A2 is like an upscale, uber-collegetown because of the economic strength of the large university community and many professionals who chose to settle in the area because of its rich cultural offerings.
If you are planning a visit to Ann Arbor, there is plenty to do, see and eat!  Be sure you take advantage of the many museums that are run by the University, such as the Exhibit Museum of Natural History and the University Art Museum (both accept donations for admission.)  The Exhibit Museum displays fossils from pre-historic life, animals native to Michigan, Native American heritage, and a recently opened a new Explore Evolution exhibit.  The museum has weekend Dinosaur Tours and regular planetarium showings.
  The Ann Arbor Hands On Museum is another not-to-be-missed, especially if you're traveling with children,  see what its like to be an anchor of a news station, or the driver of a REAL ambulance.
If you'll be visiting us during the warmer months, there are plenty of out-door activities as well.  The Nichol's Arboretum and Matthai Botanical Gardens will both be in full bloom.  You can stroll along the hills and through the flowers and enjoy the sunny weather.  The Ann Arbor Art Fair is another excellent summer event.  Thousands of artisans flood the streets of Ann Arbor displaying paintings, sculpture, glass work and jewelry.  In the evenings, you can visit Top of the Park, where movies are shown and performers entertain you at the top of a parking structure.
