This pleasant city is centered around one of the largest schools in the region, the University of Michigan. It is a far cry from nearby Detroit with all the amenities of your average college town, multiplied by ten.
Downtown is lively and walkable, and youthful exuberance is always on display. The tree lined streets are inviting, regardless of the season. The huge campus, which is very close by, boasts forward thinking students and picturesque strolls. The arts are a popular draw for natives and transplants alike. Several summer festivals bring in huge crowds.
