What Bert Has To Say About Ann Arbor Metro Area

Ann Arbor is an important cultural center for Michigan. The University of Michigan and its campus dominate the scene both physically and culturally. The downtown has a pleasant small-town atmosphere with college-style restaurants, shopping, and entertainment and a couple of large medical complexes. Nearby wooded neighborhoods, especially to the northwest, offer excellent, if expensive, housing. Newer suburbs and commercial areas lie south. Many amenities, including spectator sports and museums, are provided by the university. Live music is abundant. The population’s educational attainment is among the top five nationwide. The area has a noted literary tradition, indirectly evidenced by the national bookseller Borders Group which makes its headquarters locally.
