Ann Arbor named one of 20 best vacation spots in America
It doesn’t have the romantic seashore vistas of the Oregon Coast, or the majestic peaks of Glacier National Park, but there Ann Arbor is — on the same list with these storied vacation spots.
Ann Arbor has some expected and perhaps unexpected company on the list. There’s the aforementioned lovely Oregon coastline as well as Big Sur in California and northern Vermont. Then there’s northeastern Ohio. Why is that there, you ask? For plenty of reasons, Frommer’s says.
There’s Ohio’s extensive park system, including many parks fronting Lake Erie, not to mention Cedar Point.
And how about Ann Arbor? What about our fair city qualifies it to rank with the likes of Boulder, Colo., and Big Sur, Calif.? The Kerrytown district for one thing. Frommer’s said it’s full of eclectic shops peddling high-quality goods and used bookstores.
The article also gives a nod to the farmers market. But it says perhaps the most compelling reason to visit Ann Arbor is the annual four-day July extravaganza known as the Ann Arbor Art Fair.
