"Abbot – Home to Abbot Nursery"

My aunt has lived in Ann Arbor as far back as I can remember and in the summer, she gets everything for her garden from Abbot Nursery. This includes brilliant wind chimes, fountains and all the little extras; not just the mulch and flowers!

This is an expensive neighborhood, relatively close to the University of Michigan where you can always see a good game. Not only that, living in this area means there are an abundance of free concerts, lectures, art fairs and other events to enjoy.

If you did work somewhere other than Ann Arbor, commuting is easy because I-94 runs right through Abbot. Also, whether you live here or visit, you will want to visit Papa Tom’s Cajun Boiled Peanuts right in the neighbourhood. It is amazing. Be warned, this little area can get congested with traffic.

One of the biggest draws for me is the Summer Ann Arbor Art Fair, which brings the most amazing assortment of artists from all over the area. There is an abundance of food and entertainment, and it’s just an all-around good time.

The University Hospital is a leading care facility in nearly every field of medicine, which is right down the road. The medical staff is for the most part world renowned, but they also have a private practice where they see patients from the area.

The school district is fantastic and Dolph Nature Area is right over the line in Haisley, so it is a perfect neighborhood for a family.
