Quick Visit to the Maize n' Blue

Looking for where you can fly? We're always looking for excuses. Deb had to attend a 1-day conference in our old stomping grounds, Ann Arbor. By car, total travel time could be longer than time at the conference. What a great reason to fly! We'd much rather watch for air traffic than truck traffic:

Ann Arbor is a very accessible weekend destination by flight. Just land at KARB ...




... and zip up State Street into town. Rent a car (call to reserve in advance at KARB or there may not be one available), or taxi should be about $15. Call Yellow Taxi. They show up quickly.

If you stay downtown, you can walk nearly everywhere. See Big 10 football. Basketball. Museums. Theater. Films. Music. Shopping. Zingerman's. Kerrytown. Parks. Great people watching. Fly in for the huge summer Ann Arbor Art Fairs in July. During the rest of the year, visit the Ann Arbor Art Center Gallery Shop to find unique things made locally for gifts at decent prices. Not cheap, but decent prices for an artist's vision and craftsmanship.

Restaurants, so many restaurants -- we visited two of our favorites from when we lived there, Blue Nile for Ethiopian food (sit at a basket table and scoop up food with spongy injera bread) and less exotic but always satisfying Cottage Inn Pizza. But we have so many favorite places to eat there, it was hard to choose what to visit in two evenings there. We'll just have to go back!

There are a number of chocolate places in Ann Arbor. They're as prevalent as coffeeshops. What's with that? We popped into Schakolad on Washington St. Oh my GOODness!! Breathe deep when you walk in the door. You can almost taste the chocolate without even eating it, it smells that good. Buy some. You won't be disappointed.
