Ann Arbor is one of the great “college towns” in America. It has a vibrant college life, entertainment and the arts, but is also perfect for residents and families of all ages to live, work, play and grow. Not sure what we mean? Once you move to Ann Arbor, you’ll want to check out these 5 can’t-miss Ann Arbor attractions.
The University of Michigan
The university is the flagship institution of the UM public system, which includes campuses in Dearborn and Flint. After holding its first classes in the 1840s, the campus is now home to 19 colleges and schools and boasts an enrollment of nearly 44,000 students, making it one of the largest universities in the country. There is a park-like atmosphere with grass and trees, but the architecture is a mix of classical original architecture from the earliest days of the university to the more modern, state-of the-art buildings with some of the schools that were more recently established.
“The Big House”
This is the affectionate name given to Michigan Stadium, the legendary home of the Michigan Wolverines football team. It is called “The Big House” in reference to its massive size; it is the largest stadium in the U.S. and the second largest in the world. Its official capacity is about 107,000 but it has often held more than 115,000 on Saturday afternoons for Wolverine football—and it is often sold out.
When you get hungry walking around the UM campus or after a big Michigan Wolverine win, sit down and have a sandwich or salad at this deli which has been around for nearly 35 years and has become a favorite of the locals. Its big claim to fame is its selection of artisan cheeses, which were featured in Atlantic Monthly magazine. From Black Angus corned beef to free-range chicken and turkey to homemade chopped liver, only the best will do for Ann Arbor residents.
Dexter Cider Mill
If you are a fan of apples and fresh apple cider, then make sure you hit the Dexter Cider Mill during the fall when apples are in harvest season. The mill is the oldest operating cider mill in the state at more than 120 years old, and it makes its cider with 100-year-old press equipment using original oak racks. Each press of cider is a blend of three to five apple varieties, and they are like snowflakes in that no two pressings are the same. You can also get various baked goods made with – what else? – apples. To get a sense for the apple crop and history in Michigan, this is a must-go place for fruit lovers.
Washtenaw County Breweries
If a University of Michigan football game whets your appetite for a good beer, and a craft one at that, then check out any of the craft breweries in and around Ann Arbor upon your move here. From the Wolverine State Brewing Company just down the road from “The Big House” to Stony Lake Brewing Company in nearby Saline, you have easily more than 75 choices in the county to try a wide variety of ales and lagers.
