West of State

Residential Area and Removed from the College Scene
The West of State is an ideal neighborhood for shoppers, students, and families. It’s a quiet neighborhood yet close to the bustling downtown area so it's suitable if one is looking for entertainment or a night out. For dining, there are many choices catering to people who love a variety of food - like Westside Barbecue, Pacific Rim by Kana, Miki Japanese Restaurant, Madras Masala, and Conor O’Neill’s, an Irish pub with live music and fun events. For people looking for a restful break, there is the always quaint Wurster Park.

Renters should know this area is generally viewed as a relaxed neighborhood with its tree-lined streets and single family homes.

Such a cute neighborhood! It's right by the stadium and walking distance to great parks like Wurster and Allmendinger, as well as around the corner from Elbel if you like playing sports. Just a short walk away you'll be surrounded by cute houses where families live and Jefferson Market if you're looking for a great weekend brunch spot.

Only a couple blocks from Main Street, which has a lot of restaurants and bars. Immediately adjacent to the apartment for about 3 blocks in every direction there's nothing really but a 7/11, which is a little disappointing when you just want to run down and grab a coffee or something really quickly. No grocery stores nearby, which can be difficult if you don't have a car/are not comfortable with public transport.

The area is pretty residential. It's close to the Big House but not close to a lot of eateries. Downtown is 1 mile away so it's close but it's not close enough for something you want to pick up quickly. More eateries are closer to Ross, half a mile away. Overall, though, the neighborhood is great, not surrounded by a lot of fraternities (only one) so the noise is minimal.

There's not much in the immediate vicinity other than a 7/11, but you can get anywhere. It's pretty much equidistant to hot spots--the stadium, downtown Ann Arbor (especially the popular Bill's Beer Garden, Circ, and Blank Slate Creamery), and Ross--so you don't NEED a car, but if you have and plan to bring a car, parking is indoor and secure ($200/month extra), and then you have the world at your fingertips (Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Target, Costco, etc. all 10-15 min away by car). There are convenient ZipCars nearby if you don't have a car and want to rent one for a few hours!

The Yard's specific location isn't bad. It's a 20 minute (or less) walk from downtown, Ross, The Big House, and the IM. It shares problems with most of the neighborhoods close to campus though in that there is no walk-able access to grocery stores or really stores of any kind, and also very little convenient parking. The Yard has indoor spots for $200 per month, so I would factor that in and plan on using your car if you like to cook your own meals and meal prep.

The biggest draw of this neighborhood is the people! More students live in this area than probably any other, which means there are always people to hang out with.

There really isn't any grocery store or other shopping within walking distance, which is probably the biggest setback.

I love the Old West Side because it's a quieter neighborhood with parks, trees, single family homes, and neighborhood traditions like the Old West Side Home Tour and the Westside Art Hop. If you're trying to escape from undergrads, I'd highly recommend looking into the Old West Side.

I live at the edge of Old West Side (618 South Main), which is less than a 10 minute walk to the law school (a straight shot up Madison Ave). Although Old West Side doesn't have a lot of restaurants or bars, it's only a 7 minute walk to all of the downtown restaurants and bars. Old West Side is home to some of my favorite places: Washtenaw Dairy, Jefferson Market, and Argus Farm Stop. There's also plans to put in a new brewery on First Street.

618 South Main
It's more family homes and graduate students, so it's quiet. It's also not near any bars or restaurants, until you walk 10 minutes up to the main hub of South Main.

Just south of downtown. Easy walk to campus down Hill or Madison. Safe. Close to restaurants and bars. Do need to drive to the grocery stores though.

Graduate neighborhood. Relatively quiet except for when the train comes through, which can be really loud. It's also near the Bus.

Not a lot of good restaurant/bar options in the immediate area...much more residential. But its only a 10 min walk to downtown.

There are a lot of other Rossers who live nearby, and we're right by the Bus and the stadium which is great for tailgating.
