What do you like about Ann Arbor? Culturally diverse, liberal, great downtown, two historic movie theaters, lots of great sports including U of M teams and others, many places to eat, two great high schools, lots of activities, a very giving and generous public. Many, many more things to like about this city.

What do you dislike about Ann Arbor? Come September, when the students return to U of M, it gets to be VERY crowded downtown. Some of the traffic is a complete mess all around the city. When the students come back, so does crime -- the city needs more policemen on patrol downtown. Also the massive Art Fair in July creates many hassles when you try to get around.

What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? The downtown is amazing, the Huron River is beautiful. There are som many parks and recreational areas to visit. I've lived here almost 20 years and I haven't seen everything yet.

How expensive is it? The housing is getting to be very expensive. But everything else -- places to eat, shop, whatever -- are not.

Is it safe? For the most part. There are rarely any serious crimes. There are more burglaries downtown when the students come back, hence the reason more police are needed.

How is the weather? Maybe one of the downsides to the city. The summers are beautiful, the autumns are quick, and the winters are very long. When spring finally comes, it's great.

Additional thoughts? A very progressive city.

What do you like about Ann Arbor?
Ann Arbor is the melting pot of MI, the people are nice, many cool places to eat, lots to do, great school system, the people are artistic and intelligent for the most part, and Hill Auditorium is awesome (especially when you play an instrument there)!
What do you dislike about Ann Arbor?
It is crowded especially in September when the students return so traffic is a mess! Crime rates go back up with the return of the students, the art fair is cool but it also makes parking hard in the downtown area near impossible.
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in?
Downtown... is AWESOME! There is so much to do.
How expensive is it?
The housing is expensive and the taxes are higher than in Ypsilanti.
Is it safe?
Yeah for the most part. Small crimes are common.
How is the weather?
The Weather changes a lot... it can be sunny one minute and raining the next.
Additional thoughts?
A great city!
