High on your list of things to see in Ann Arbor should be the University of Michigan, where you can stroll the scenic grounds of the campus and browse through the many museums that have made their home here, including the Museum of Art and the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum, both of which are fabulous family-friendly attractions. Or, just grab a book, order a coffee, and cuddle up at one of the city’s countless cafes.
For a bit of peace and quiet and a good dose of nature, you can’t beat a trip to the Matthaei Botanical Gardens & Nichols Arboretum, where you can tour both local and global fauna alike.
To indulge in a little retail therapy, head down to Kerrytown, where you’ll find an array of small boutiques and restaurants as well as a Farmers’ Market on weekends. Another great spot in which to stop and enjoy a bite to eat is Main Street where you’ll find fare to suit all tastes and budgets.
However you wish to spend your visit, start your Ann Arbor adventure right when you book into an IHG hotel. You’ll get all of the rest and relaxation you need to make the most of your stay in this charming, culture-soaked city.
