Located 45 minutes west of Detroit and four hours east of Chicago, Ann Arbor is the sixth-largest city in Michigan. Tree Town boasts low crime rates, excellent public schools, and a vibrant music and arts scene.

Biking is also an excellent way to get around town, which is walkable and serviced by excellent public transport. Whether you’re moving here to study, take a position at the University of Michigan, work at one of city’s technology firms, or are just hoping to enjoy the Midwest, you’ve made a great choice: Ann Arbor has topped lists of the best American small cities to live in for years, and you’re about to experience firsthand why that is.
