As we come into the second week of August, summer is nearing its end. Don’t fret yet though, there are still a couple weekends left for you to make the most of your summer in Ann Arbor. Need ideas on how to spend the last few weeks? Here is a list of some awesome things to do around town before summer’s end:
1. Float/paddle from Argo Canoe Livery to Gallup Park
A staple of an Ann Arbor summer, kayaking down the Huron River is full of fun and beautiful sights.
2. Check out a FREE concert at Bank of Ann Arbor’s Sonic Lunch
There are still three shows left to see this summer with BØRNS wsg/ Chris Bathgate playing this Thursday 8/13 at 11:30 a.m.
3. Enjoy a beer on a patio downtown
There are many places you can go to downtown to enjoy a great patio beer. Looking to stay local? Hit up Arbor Brewing Company, Jolly Pumpkin, Grizzly Peak Brewing or Blue Tractor for an Ann Arbor brewed pint.
4. Grab a cone from Washtenaw Dairy or Blank Slate Creamery
Summer = Ice Cream. Enough said.
5. Picnic on Campus
People watch the hustle and bustle of State Street while enjoying a nice shaded picnic on University of Michigan’s gorgeous campus.
6. Take a hike at or around one of Ann Arbor’s parks
There are over 150 parks in Ann Arbor just waiting to be explored. Varying in landscape and activities to do at each, make sure to hit at least one park this summer.
