Ann Arbor, Michigan

Ann Arbor is a city in the state of Michigan. The census of 2010 stated its population is 113,934, making it the sixth largest city in Michigan. Ann Arbor was founded in 1824, named for the wives of the village’s founders and the stands of Bur Oak trees. Ann Arbor grew quickly in the early to mid-20th century and is now home to the University of Michigan, one of the top ranking research universities in the United States. Ann Arbor was declared a village in 1833. The Ann Arbor Land Company, a group of land speculators, set aside 40 acres of undeveloped land and offered it to the state of Michigan as the site for the state capital, but lost the bid to Lansing. In 1837, the property was accepted as the new site of the University of Michigan, which moved from Detroit. Over the past several decades, Ann Arbor has struggled to overcome the effects of sharply rising land values, gentrification, and urban sprawl stretching into outlying countryside. Still, Ann Arbor consistently ranks in the “top places to live” lists published by various mainstream media outlets annually.

It’s always fun to travel to Ann Arbor and walk down Main Street, located between William and Huron Streets. In fact, it can justifiably be argued that no trip to Ann Arbor is complete without taking a walk down Main Street. There are many great stores and interesting people as well as lots of restaurants and bars. There’s no shortage of good places to eat and just as many good places to go and have a drink afterward. Another must see is the Matthaei Botanical Gardens & Nichols Arboretum. Located on North Dixboro Road, it is a 300 acre garden with an array of outdoor displays and nature trails for exploring. You can enjoy peaceful surroundings among natural habitats, bridges, rocks, etc.

At Ann Arbor this botanical event has a truly awe inspiring collect of cactus plants in a green house. The Conservatory in Ann Arbor is beautiful for a nice, leisurely stroll through 3 ‘Houses’, Tropical, Temperate, and Desert. Many lovely outdoor gardens surround the greenhouse, including Perennial, Herb, Rock, and Medicinal. The Bonsai and Penjing Garden is especially interesting, and there’s a children’s garden found behind the buildings. Maps are available for the outdoor walking trails, all of which are less than a mile.

If asian food is what your palate craves after a long day on the road, then stop in Ann Arbor and visit the Pacific Rim restaurant located on W. Liberty Street. You can indulge in the Sable fish entree, the Big Eye Tuna, or seared tuna with delicious sesame-ginger-wasabi seasoning. The pork special wrapped in bacon ad the ribeye with rice are also worth trying. Also the Thai-Style Calamari appetizer has received rave reviews. Since the atmosphere is quiet and elegant, you can sit back and enjoy a relaxing meal and a pleasant evening out. If you’re looking for a restaurant with plenty of options for all palates, then Sava’s should please you. Located on State Street, its atmosphere is light and airy with lots of vegetable dishes if you are a vegetarian. The spinach and artichoke dip is said to be delicious. Their vegetable side dishes are innovative and generously portioned. There is a nice variety of other main dishes as well, such as a Cuban sandwich, lobster roll, black bean burger and bacon cheddar burger. Their wine selection is notable as well.
