The entrepreneurial case for Ypsilanti's authenticity

Maybe it's the price point. Maybe it's the proximity and cost prohibitions of Ann Arbor. Maybe it's the gravitational pull of authenticity. Whatever the reason, Ypsilanti is drawing local artisans and boutique entrepreneurs into its fold with its unique sense of community.

How Hooklogic turned an old economy space into a new economy enterprise

The former Leopold Brothers building on S. Main St. is the kind of space that takes imagination and moxie to make work. Enter New York City-based software firm Hooklogic, which decided to abandon plans to outsource its programming and set up shop in Ann Arbor, turning a light industrial space into a workplace for new economy talent.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Dexter

Dexter

Apple cider, model railroads, and  pie-eating contests --walk through Dexter's tidy downtown and you'll feel like you've wandered onto the set of a Hollywood movie. Just seven miles outside Ann Arbor, nestled alongside the Huron River, this community of nearly 3000 boasts a top-ranked high school, the state's oldest running cider mill and three large woodland parks. 

Spend an afternoon of hiking, canoeing or cross-country skiing then grab a cup of locally roasted joe at Foggy Bottom Coffee House or enjoy a treat at the Dexter Bakery. Looking for something a bit more urbane? Why not sample the award-winning microbrews at Jolly Pumpkin Brewery or savor the French cuisine of Bistro Renaissance. Better yet, catch and cook your own spring-fed  trout. For nearly 185 years, Dexter has been a fresh-baked slice of small town goodness.
