If you vacation with any frequency, you know how important it is to be in the right location. Getting around in a new city can be a pain, and it’s always cheaper — not to mention more affordable — if you can find yourself staying in a location that’s close to all the places you want to be and things you want to do.
One of the best things that we at University Inn of Ann Arbor have to offer is our location. Not only are we located right along the bus route for those taking public transportation, but we have many nearby amenities and locations to keep your Ann Arbor vacation exciting.
Shopping for a new college? Have a teen who will be graduating high school soon or even a child who already attends University of Michigan? University Inn, much as the name might suggest, is located very close to University of Michigan’s campus, making it the perfect place to stay when you want to visit the school. We’re so conveniently located for UM visitors, in fact, that we even offer a discount: 10% off to students and parents visiting University of Michigan.
Go Kayaking or Canoeing
Maybe you have a more athletic mindset and you’re looking for something that will give you an opportunity to breathe in fresh air or work your arm muscles. If that’s the case, consider canoeing or kayaking Huron River. This is a great solitary activity or an activity for the whole family, if you’d prefer it. There are boat rental locations throughout the city, but we recommend starting at Argo Canoe Livery, just 3.5 miles from our location.
Catch a Game At Michigan Stadium
“The Big House” is aptly nicknamed — it’s the second largest sports stadium in the world. In fact, it’s the 34th largest sports venue at all. There are over 109,900 seats total. Imagine those seats filled with screaming sports fans and you can get an idea of how exciting it is to be here. And we’re lucky enough to be located just 2 miles away from it. When it’s football season, this is the perfect place to cheer on the Wolverines or simply enjoy an exciting game night in the stadium.
Grab a Cup of Coffee
Need a morning pick-me-up or a refreshing break from a day of sightseeing and exploring Ann Arbor? Stop in to Bearclaw Coffee. There are locations throughout the city, and they even have a food truck. But rest assured this is an Ann Arbor company, locally owned and operated. One location is right up the street from us on Washtenaw Avenue. Here you can get hot or frozen coffee drinks, as well as a tasty bagel or “bear bites,” playing along with the theme of their name. You can also check out the recently opened Thrive, right next door to University Inn, for your daily dose of healthy additives.
