With a sea of shops, boutiques, art galleries, eateries, bakeries, restaurants, concert venues, book stores, pubs, street artists and vibrant festivals like Festifools and the annual Ann Arbour Art Fair, the Main street offers a vintage getaway from the modern hangout spots and malls.
The street is the very place that inspired Bob Seger to write his song “Mainstreet” that relives the simpler times. Eventhough not as minimal anymore, the street still has managed to keep its old-world charm alive without compromising on its modern use. Take a walk here and no matter what don’t miss out on exploring the vintage book stores on the street. If you are looking for something interesting to do with your tiny tot, try to spot the fairy doors as a part of the self-guided fairy door walking tour. For those who don’t know, the Fairy doors are small doorsset into the base of trees where people can leave small notes and gifts and make wishes.
