Ann Arbor is a college town that strikes a balance between suburban and urban living. Its downtown area offers a curated collection of unique restaurants and shops, and its campus area provides a number of museums and tourist attractions, many of which are free to visit. The Ann Arbor community tends to be liberal and accepting, and although a significant portion of the people are university students who move in and out annually, there is a vibrant community of so-called “townies” who are the true life of the town.

Ann Arbor is a vibrant community with fantastic cultural diversity. It is a college town, so keep in mind the demographic of young adult residents. During football season, Saturdays are “game day,” a major event that makes it difficult to navigate the city due to the crowds. The best thing about the city is the recent developmental efforts towards accessibility and beautification. This year, a portion of the roadways were converted into bike lanes, and there are many parks.
