Ann Arbor Michigan Attractions
If that sounds like a dreamy, family-friendly vacation, read on to find a list of things to do with your kids in Ann Arbor. It's been 40 years since Bob Seger released his first album, "The Great American Songbook," and many visitors go to the Michigan Theater just to see its old-fashioned elegance. In fact, the school is one of the few attractions made in the entire state of Michigan, and the only one in Michigan.
In 2013, Hilary and Mike Gustafson opened the Literati Bookstore as a refuge for book lovers in downtown Ann Arbor. The Reading Room was opened in 1931 and is located on the corner of Main Street and Cook Street, just a few blocks from the Michigan Theater. This local coffee chain was founded by a group of former students of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Michigan and has several locations in Ann Arbor. It is a great opportunity to visit one of our favorite cafes in the city as well as other local shops and restaurants.
The University of Michigan has outstanding architecture in its College of Arts and Sciences and the University Museum of Modern Art (UMMA). Located on the corner of Main Street and Cook Street, just blocks from the Michigan Theater, UMma offers a wide variety of art exhibitions. It is located in the heart of downtown Ann Arbor.
The Kelsey Museum of Archaeology is a great place to learn when you visit Ann Arbor as a child. If you have children, this interactive museum is a must - visit museums for children and adults alike. There are four museums you can visit if you are not a college student: the University of Michigan, University Museum, Michigan Art Museum and University Library and the Michigan History Museum. Ann Arbor has a wide selection of public sculptures and murals that can be seen both on campus and in downtown.
The Ann Arbor Hands-on Museum specializes in interactive exhibits that help children and adults discover the scientists behind their favorite books, movies, music, art, and more.
Antiques collectors will appreciate the Ann Arbor Art Center's antiques collection and extensive collection of antiques. There are some of the best antique shops in the state of Michigan as well as a wide selection of antique cars and motorcycles. The Ann Arbor Arts Center offers a variety of art, history and art history from the past, present and future of Michigan art.
Whether you're taking a walk along the Huron River or joining the roaring crowd at the Big House on a Saturday afternoon, Ann Arbor has something for you. Whether you're looking for retail therapy or some quirky souvenirs in Kerrytown, Ann Arbor will surely meet your needs.
Visit one of the city's parks, visit a museum, attend the annual Ann Arbor Art Festival (in June or early July), or visit the Michigan Museum of Natural History to visit the museum and marvel at historic architecture or visit the University of Michigan campus. Nichols Arboretum and Matthaei Botanical Garden are about 6 km apart and offer plenty of greenery to dive into. Both are run by the University of Michigan and you can walk from one park to another in a short time, whether you are on a day trip or a weekend trip.
Both offer different ways to see the colors, and both are located just outside Ann Arborbe, just minutes from the University of Michigan campus.
If you drive along Washtenaw Avenue, Ypsilanti is just a few miles south of Ann Arbor, and the M-14 leads to the western suburbs of Detroit. If you don't like the ride, I would recommend staying in the city, especially on the east side of the road, north of Michigan State University. The Graduate Insight Arbor is located in a gazebo, making it ideal for those who want to walk to many things but are not too far from the university campus. With a population of about 1.5 million people, it is bordered by the Detroit River, the Michigan State Line and the eastern border of Michigan.
There are also numerous transportation options that offer a variety of transportation options from downtown Ann Arbor to downtown Ypsilanti and other parts of the city. You can take a bus to Ann Ann Arbor from the University of Michigan campus or take a bus in and out of the campus.
The Fuller Park Pool is a great place for the whole family to have fun and visit Ann Arbor's outdoor attractions. It rained during our attempt to visit Nichols Arboretum, but we look forward to seeing it when we visit Ann Arbor again.
We also recommend a visit to the Ann Arbor Distilling Company, which has a fun tasting room in a quiet part of Ann Arbor.
