Ann Arbor vacation rentals

Make a great escape to Tree Town

Ann Arbor may be home to the University of Michigan, a temple of learning that’s particularly renowned for research and innovation, but the community itself is both pleasingly quaint and lush with greenery. There’s a reason why they call it Tree Town: there are refreshing, wooded areas all over the region, while the tree-lined streets are a pleasure to wander on lazy, sunny afternoon. You can make yourself at home in a number of Ann Arbor vacation rentals, which range from fully-equipped condos ideal for couples, to large family homes where your whole clan can get comfortable.

Natural serenity and busy shops in Ann Arbor

Where better to see the trees of Tree Town than Nichols Arboretum? Known simply as the Arb, this is a sprawling realm of exotic trees and flowers, tastefully laid out in sculpted grounds dating back more than a century. The Main Valley is a focal point, though there’s plenty to explore around the Arb, whether you want to take in the natural landmarks, recline on hillsides with a book, or tuck into a picnic while people-watching. Afterwards, you can mingle with the locals in Kerrytown, the historic quarter known for its craft shops, artisan food stores, and cultural hangouts tucked away on brick-lined streets.

Attractions to suit everyone in Ann Arbor

It doesn’t matter how old you are, or whether your tastes run to nature or sport – there are plenty of pleasing attractions near Ann Arbor vacation rentals.

Stimulate their minds at the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum, where they can explore interactive exhibits that will fire up scientific curiosity. And then, of course, there’s Michigan Stadium – the largest football arena in the whole of United States. They don’t call this the Big House for nothing.

Cedar Bend, which hugs one part of the river, offers a scenic swathe of greenery with woods and flowers.
