<p>Ann Arbor has everything you would ever want in a college town. Anything (for the most part) that you can do in a big city can be done here.</p>

<p>is it a pedestrian-friendly place or do you suggest having a car to get around...?</p>

<p>Having a car would be more of a hassle than a luxury when it comes to driving around AA. No places to park, awful traffic, and a confusing trafic patter (one way streets, etc). Also the city is extremely pedestrian friendly, at almost every intersection pedestrians can cross whenever they want.</p>

<p>We're from CA and it was my son's favorite college town coast-to-coast. The only negative for him was the weather and for me the cost for him to attend. He's at Berkeley now, but we will always have a fondness for Ann Arbor!</p>

<p>Also public transportation makes it very easy to go anywhere in the city as well.</p>

<p>Does it have a big city feel to it or is it more like a college town?</p>

<p>It has a medium city feel, and it's definitely more of a college town. You're not going to New York or Chicago, but almost everything a big city would have Ann Arbor has.</p>
