Ann Arbor Summer Checklist

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
