A Perfect Blend
In Ann Arbor, many of the amenities of a big city are complemented by the support, camaraderie, and accessibility of a tight-knit community. And we're not the only ones saying that — Ann Arbor is rated highly by travel guides, websites, and magazines. But the rankings are only the beginning.
Ann Arbor Is ...
Ann Arbor takes its food seriously. You’ll find restaurants for every budget, taste, and cuisine – along with excellent gourmet shops and a year-round farmers market. And with Michigan helping to lead the craft-beer boom, you’ll be in good shape when you get thirsty, too.
Experience a game at Michigan Stadium, the world’s largest college football stadium. Or cheer on the university’s national powers in men’s and women’s basketball, ice hockey, and more.
Listen to an amazing up-and-comer or an old favorite at nationally known venues like The Ark, the Blind Pig, and Hill Auditorium. See a movie at the historic Michigan Theater. Wander independent galleries or an outstanding university art museum. Catch the Broadway stars of tomorrow in U-M’s acclaimed theater program. Or visit one of the thriving local independent bookstores that host readings and author appearances.
Ann Arbor’s numerous parks, lush greenery, and the winding Huron River provide you with countless opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. The city alone has 157 city parks covering more than 2,000 acres, offering active uses like kayaking, mountain biking, swimming, ice skating, and golf; as well as pristine nature areas. And the university’s own Nichols Arboretum and Matthaei Botanical Gardens are well worth visiting – again and again.
At Ross, we make you and your family a priority. The Michigan Ross Partners Club helps families and significant others make the most of Ann Arbor and the Ross community. It's a built-in way to find friends, play dates, job opportunities, and insider recommendations.
