Sisters Shopping + Drinking Day Trip to Ann Arbor, Michigan

Ann Arbor is home to Michigan University, lots of artsy places and tons of restaurants/breweries – there are a million+ ways to make a day or weekend trip here!

My sister and I went for a concert and focused our day on only the best – drinking and shopping! Here was our plan – everything is walkable and easy.

HOMES Brewery: We stopped here before dropping off our car at the airbnb. It’s a brewery known for its sours. The food was good too!

From here on out is all walking!

Treasure Mart: Two floors of vintage goods – dishes, furniture, knick knacks, etc.

FOUND (3 min walk): One of my favorite stores. Unique, cute gifts and home items.

16 Hands (1 min walk): Kind of an art gallery vibe with jewelry and other hand made items.

Thistle & Bess (3 min walk): Another cutesy store with gifts, books and more.

Blom Meadworks (3 min walk): Another one of my favorite stops. Come here just for the aesthetic. It’s all clean white and wood lines. With really good mead!

Blue Tractor Brewery (1 min walk): We stopped here to get a beer at the bar. It was one of the few breweries we hadn’t tried yet. It was okay! Definitely more of a restaurant vibe (that’s not necessarily veg friendly).

Literati Bookstore (1 min walk): This an Ann Arbor legend! You must go here if you haven’t! A famous cute little bookstore. You have to go just to say you’ve been.

Rock Paper Scissors (2 min walk): A cute paper and cards gift shop.

Graffiti Alley (6 min walk): An alley full of street art and graffiti. You have to walk through if you’re in the area!

Urban Outfitters (6 min walk): We always have to stop by Urban. I like this location because it’s big and usually has a good sale section.

Sava’s (6 min walk): We wanted to try something new and this place was great. They take reservations and have vegetarian options.

The Ark (13 min walk): This is supposed to be THE artsy venue to see shows. It’s veryyy small and intimate with all seats. You have to be a member to get alcohol. We didn’t LOVE it since it was so quiet you couldn’t even singalong.

Alley Bar (1 min walk): We stopped here after the show. It has dive like qualities and cocktails!

The Last Word: For our last stop, we went to The Last Word heheh. It has a speakeasy vibe and more cocktails!

We stayed overnight, but you could definitely go home at night depending on your drive.
