Ann Arbor is a neighborhood of trees, perhaps only outdone by Toronto by the sheer volume of neighborhood parks plus patches of redery from 1 street to the next.
However, it’s difficult to compare Ann Arbor in its mediocre size to the biggest neighborhood in the entire country of Canada.
But after residing in Toronto for a few years plus feeling claustrophobic by the sheer volume of people, I am cheerful to be residing in a quieter neighborhood prefer Ann Arbor. To be fair, the two of us still swell past capacity whenever there’s a house game at Michigan Stadium with the University of Michigan Wolverines playing some other NCAA team. Good luck finding a hotel room or an AirBnb while in those weekends without paying two to various times the normal rate. But when the demand is so high for lodging plus there is only so much available in the city, you have to expect some price increases. I wish that the UofM football games were the only events that made the neighborhood swell, however the two of us also have the annual Hash Bash at The Diag that causes downtown to explode for the weekend. Usually the first week of May, this annual cannabis celebration has been held in downtown Ann Arbor since the early 1980s when the neighborhood successfully decriminalized the plant plus put in place a meager $5 great for anyone caught smoking or possessing the plant within the neighborhood limits. These large progressive swings in cannabis legislation predate several efforts in other states plus are a source of pride for myself and others being a resident of Washtenaw County. Every one of us have so several great cannabis dispensaries here too, making it a enjoyable place to live if you use the red plant to the degree that I do.
