Living in Ann Arbor

Ann Arbor is believed to have been named for the founders’ wives (both named Ann) and the burr oak trees that used to fill the area, and as such a visit to the Nichols Arboretum is an absolute must once you get there. By joining InterNations you could even take a tour of the Arboretum with a new friend made on the site – there are always plenty of fellow expats looking for new ways to enjoy their new cities. If you’ve moved to Ann Arbor with children, then the perfect place to start would be the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum, an interactive museum dedicated to getting kids learning in the most fun environment possible. And if you’re a sports fan, then fear not, Ann Arbor is a great place to be; not only are there plenty of national teams in Michigan but the University of Michigan takes it all pretty seriously too with the country’s largest college football stadium, and some hefty local rivalries (watch out Ohio State!). Get ready to start supporting the Wolverines!

Working in Ann Arbor

Ann Arbor draws all sorts of professionals to the area, not to mention the odd professor or two. With the University based in Ann Arbor, not only is Ann Arbor used to an influx of new residents every year, working in Ann Arbor as an expat is an easy and – dare we say it – almost an enjoyable experience. Besides the University, Ann Arbor is also popular with high technology and bio-tech companies who are drawn by the high level of talent in the city. Globally minded expats shouldn’t be hard to find in Ann Arbor, which has one of the highest foreign-born populations in the State, but InterNations can help newcomers reach out to fellow expatriates and those working in Ann Arbor with its message boards, community forums, and discussion threads.
