Living in Ann Arbor
Built on the banks of the Huron River and located 45 minutes west of downtown Detroit (and approximately 25 minutes west of the Detroit Metro Airport), Ann Arbor is a cultural mecca within the Midwest basin. It is home to the University of Michigan — one of the finest universities, medical schools, and premier health systems in the country — and offers a unique blend of city sophistication and small-town charm to students and professionals, singles and families, newly born and newly retired, alike.
