Southside Ann Arbor
Enjoy football at Michigan Stadium, taste perfect pastries from quirky delis and have easy access to downtown from Southside
You get the best of both worlds in Southside Ann Arbor. It’s within easy reach of the excitement and culture of downtown, yet far enough away for a more peaceful experience when you want it. It may be the quieter side of town but there’s still lots to enjoy. Whether you’re hanging out in cafés, kicking back in beautiful parks or getting caught up in the buzz of a big game, there’s so much to love about living here.
Home to the University of Michigan’s South Campus, this is the place to be for college sports. The area comes alive when rivals visit town, as huge crowds and tailgate parties take center stage. Soak up the electric atmosphere as you sit with 100,000 other fans in Michigan Stadium, shouting for the Wolverines football team. Cheer for the college basketball team at Crisler Centre, and experience the thrill of a UM ice hockey game at Yost Ice Arena.
Watching sport is a huge part of life in Southside AA, but you’ll also have every opportunity to play - on skates at Ann Arbor Ice Cube and with your clubs at UM Golf Course. Take your pick of an array of green parks to exercise and unwind. Go jogging in Buhr Park or just take a little time out amongst the wildlife at Scarlett Mitchell Nature Reserve.
Meet friends for baked treats at Zingerman’s Bakehouse, which will quickly become one of your favorite hangouts. The artisan breads, cakes, cookies and pastries are dangerously moreish. Roos Roast Coffee is perfect for your morning brew; grab a Honey Vanilla Latte on your way to class to get everything off to a good start.
