Campus Information

Welcome to Ann Arbor sign

Spring time in Ann Arbor is a wonderful time of year!  You know that spring has officially started when restaurants and bars have taken their patio furniture out of storage and put it outside.  Many restaurants in Ann Arbor offer outdoor seating in the spring summer. This provides a nice change from eating indoors and is a nice way to enjoy the beautiful weather. 

Main Street restaurants provide an upscale dining experience close to campus. Many restaurants on Main Street have patios, and some are even on the roof!  Palio’s, anyone? The ambiance provided by these restaurants is elegant but dining outdoors provides a more casual and relaxed environment.  South University is an all-time favorite spot for Michigan Students.  Many restaurants on South U have patio seating.  This is great for students as it allows them to enjoy the outdoors at their favorite hang outs!

Food trucks also make an appearance in Ann Arbor during the spring and summer.  Located on West Washington just past Main Street, these food carts are always a hit with the locals! For more info about these food carts, check out Mark's Carts

For a full list of restaurants with outdoor seating check out Urban Spoon

Enjoy the warm weather while it’s here!
