Top Activities in Ann Arbor, Michigan

Try these fun things to see, eat and buy with downtime in this college town.

The electric excitement coming from Michigan Stadium on game day is an event to remember, whether or not you're a sports fan or affiliated with the university. With a capacity of 107,601, the Big House, as it is affectionately known, is the largest stadium in the nation and the third-biggest worldwide. See a game, plan an event or just book a tour

More Than a Delicatessen

Mention this college town to any University of Michigan alumnus -- or really, anyone who has been here -- and it won't be long before talk turns to Zingerman's. An obligatory stop, the original deli serves exquisite NYC-style sandwiches and sells an extensive selection of specialty foods. Now a local food empire, Zingerman's also produces candy, coffee, cheese and more. 


An intimate music venue downtown, the 400-seat Ark showcases both established and upcoming musicians, with an emphasis on folk- and country-tinged roots music. It's a tremendous opportunity to see acclaimed performers up close and personal.

Surrounded by Science

Surrounded by science. The University's Museum of Natural History reopened last year in a brand-new building, offering an interactive, immersive experience across multiple floors -- from the prehistoric mastadon couple at the entry to the star-studded planetarium and dome theater.

Sip Local

Grab a locally produced coffee, tea or beer from the café at the Argus Farm Stop and pick up some farm-to-store goods afterwards. Everything here is sold on consignment for local farmers, bakers, beekeepers and the like, such as produce, fresh bread and honey.
