"Saline – Close to Ann Arbor, But Quieter"

Although most people enjoy Saline for different reasons, I love their Farmer’s Market! Sure, there are markets like this a lot closer to where I live, but the one in Saline is more like an outdoor shopping extravaganza full of plenty of organic and homemade goods. It’s clean and open and just a delight to go to.

Saline is in a fantastic location. You will find that a vast majority of residents work in Ann Arbor, but prefer to live here because it’s a lot quieter and more mature. Parts of Ann Arbor can be cluttered by University of Michigan students; Saline is an expensive neighborhood where college students typically stay clear of.

Crime rate is low and if you are going to have a family, this is a great city to do so. The schools are fantastic, neighborhoods are safe and Curtiss Park is here which is well manicured with a lovely little waterfall.

Saline is close enough to Ann Arbor to enjoy the endless supply of art galleries, boutiques, restaurants, nightclubs, festivals and shopping malls, yet far enough away to not deal with the constant commotion. Michigan Ave has a hospital, shopping center and a few great places to eat, such as Mac’s Acadian Seafood Shop and Guilin Restaurant, where you will find the best Chinese in the area. If you enjoy a stiff drink, head over to Dan’s Downtown Tavern.
