There are some things I always loved to do as a kid in Ann Arbor...

There's someone else's ideas of what to do with kids in Detroit you can use for more inspiration.

Seasonal fun

  • UM sports (don't forget volleyball, gymnastics, baseball, soccer, and field hockey)

General Outdoors


  • Earth Day events
  • Huge puppets on Main Street for FestiFools



  • Blimp spotting in the air or at Ann Arbor Airport (or a ride if you have connections) before home football weekends
  • Watch the UM Marching Band practice. Check the schedule as times vary.
  • Watch the planes pick up and drop off banners at the Ann Arbor Airport  - best a few hours before home football games.  Play at the Pittsfield Township playground just across from the airport if you need diversion between planes.
