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.

Saline Features

Downtown Saline Goes to Downtown Detroit

Over 1,300 downtown professionals are making the journey to Detroit this week for the National Main Street Conference. Saline will be in the house, learning what Motown has to teach about revitalizing downtown development and, in turn, educating the Motor City about its Main Street successes.

Some communities have discovered that what was once reserved for dumpsters and smoke breaks may actually be an untapped downtown asset. Just ask Saline.

The Art of Community Building: Saline's TwoTwelve Art Center

How do you turn a community of artists into an arts community? It's a question many in Washtenaw County struggle to answer.

Now Playing: Spontaneous Art

The name kind of says it all. Then again, maybe it doesn't. Spontaneous Art is a trio of guerilla (and sometimes gorilla) performance artists who have dedicated themselves to making life in the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti region a little funkier, a little sillier, and, most importantly, a little less predictable.

Game Day Entrepreneurship

A business opportunity. Concentrate's Jon Zemke chats with Taylor Bond, co-founder of the game day parking finder ParknParty.
