11 Jun Summer Things to do in Ann Arbor
Summer Things to do in Ann Arbor
It is finally Summer which means there are a lot of fun things easily accessible from your Suites in Ann Arbor.
Here are some of my favorite Summer things to do in Ann Arbor.
Sonic Lunch, Close to your Suites in Ann Arbor
What if I were to tell you that national caliber acts come and perform in Ann Arbor during summer, in public and for free, at lunchtime? Would you believe me?
Well, it is true, every Thursday at 11:30 am, bands like Sunflower Bean, The Accidentals, and Absofacto will have Liberty Square in downtown Ann Arbor rocking all Summer long. Started in 2008, Sonic Lunch has become a mainstay of the Downtown Ann Arbor Summer scene.
So, if you like your lunch with live music, when you are in town, walk down to Liberty Square and enjoy your Sonic Lunch.
Summer Beer Festival
Do you love craft beer?
What would you say to over 150 brewers sampling over 1000 Michigan-Made craft beers during a two-day festival?
If this sounds like nirvana to you, and you will be in the area on Friday, July 27th or Saturday, July 28th, you should head on over to Riverside Park in Ypsilanti (just a few miles from Ann Arbor) and join Summer Beer Festival 2018 (the oldest of the four Michigan Brewer’s annual festivals).
Rolling Hills Water Park
When it is hot outside, and it does get very hot and humid in Michigan during the Summer, Rolling Hills Water Park is your ticket for wet and wild fun.
While Rolling Hills is a county-operated water park, it has no shortage of amazing ways to have fun. Take a trip down the lazy river, enjoy the wave pool or thrills from one of the park water slides.
And, if you want to just kick back and relax on a beautiful day, you can just sit in one of Rolling Hills luxurious lounge or sand chairs under a shade umbrella while enjoying a refreshing drink.
Rolling Hills is located at 7660 Stony Creek Road in Ypsilanti.
Ann Arbor Art Fairs
Perhaps the largest and most well-known Summer event in the area is the world famous Ann Arbor Art Fair (one of the largest outdoor art fairs in the nation).
The Ann Arbor Art Fair, a fixture since it was started in 1960, usually includes well over 350 artists, street music, copious food and drinks, and hundreds of thousands of art enthusiasts.
As usual, the 2018 Art Fair will be held across Streets around the University of Michigan campus and all over downtown Ann Arbor starting on July 19th and ending on the 22nd.
