Just a hop, skip and jump down the road from Ann Arbor is the town CNN/Money Magazine calls one of the country's top 100 "Best Places to Live" (It's 42nd). Known for its annual Celtic Festival in July, this community of 9000 boasts great schools, a charming downtown and the kind of quality of life other communities drool over.

Meet a friend for coffee at the Drowsy Parrot, chow down on one of the best burgers you've ever had at Dan's Downtown Tavern or slurp oysters at Mac's Acadian Seafood. From its weekly farmer's market to a pair of nationally renowned high school bluegrass/fiddle groups, if you're looking for authetic midwestern living, look no further.
