Ann Arbor

Ann Arbor is consistently ranked among the top places to live in the United States. Our city’s smaller size makes it a very manageable place to get to know at your own pace.

Why? Michigan Medicine's students and trainees love catching a show at the School of Music, Theatre & Dance, spending a quiet Saturday wandering the farmers market downtown, and going for a long run in the Arboretum to clear their heads at the end of a long week.

Discover Ann Arbor and discover your reason why.
