The University of Michigan forms the heart of Ann Arbor, and Madonna’s erstwhile college has plenty of reasons for non-students to pay it a visit. The serene and beautiful campus is centred around two lovely public spaces: the “Diag” and the Law School Quad. Many locals consider the Law school quad, with its gothic-style architecture and tree-ringed gardens to be the most beautiful part of the city.
In the fall, the main even for most visitors is the weekly Wolverines football game. University of Michigan Stadium has a seating capacity of 109,901 – largest in the United States – and home games for the Wolverines always sell out. Michigan also has a long tradition in hockey, basketball, baseball, swimming, track, wrestling, and gymnastics.
While on campus, don’t miss out on the many quirky and interesting museums. Old museum standbys such as Natural History and Archaeology and a number of art galleries are supplemented by more unusual exhibits, such as the Sindecuse Museum of Dentistry and the Stearns Collection of Musical Instruments.
