Review of Ann Arbor, Michigan

Excellent university town
Star Rating - 2/23/2012
Ann Arbor is an excellent -- if not small - University town. Indeed I would not be using this website if it were a town of close to 300,000 instead of 120,000. It has nice restaurants, and great music that the University brings in, but it lacks a bit more culture. Plus my siblings live far away and so that is why I'm looking at this site to see what I've giving up versus would be moving too. But if you like small town feel than Ann Arbor is you place to be for sure. The culture it has is excellent. It is close to lots of parks and trails -- so if you are an outdoors person then you have access to that. It lacks mountains and ocean, but I guess you can't have everything.
