Enduringly Midwestern and entirely cosmopolitan, the Ypsilanti-Ann Arbor area is the perfect place to plan your next meeting. Union workers and corporate executives, convention hosts and tourist groups alike can choose respite from nearly forty hotels and motels ranging in limited service to four-star quality. Area attractions and events—including Yankee Air Museum, Purple Rose Theatre, the Michigan Summer Beer Festival and ElvisFest—are nearby and easily accessed by express- and byway. Guests also are surrounded by several unique Michigan dining establishments. From Coney Islands to steak houses, Vietnamese diners to street food carts, the wide array of Ypsilanti-Ann Arbor area restaurants easily compete with the culinary behemoths of the American coasts. Many local chefs integrate foods like Michigan asparagus and whitefish into accessible menus in an effort to preserve Midwestern flavor. In the same vein, local store owners have risen to represent what’s singularly ours. The Downtown Ann Arbor, Kerrytown, State Street and Depot Town districts offer clothing boutiques, resellers, farmers’ markets, coffee and bookshops, galleries and novelty stores among a variety of clubs, play and concert houses, breweries and bars. Our county also features over 23,000 acres of public recreation areas perfect for hiking, biking, fishing and swimming. Come visit, and take comfort in our hospitality.
