Kelsey Museum of Archaeology: Located on the University campus this is an interesting small museum featuring pieces from ancient civilizations across the UMMA. Make sure to check out the current exhibition. The recent photography show, Red Rock & Rust Belt, highlighting a tale of two cities, Petra Jordan and Detroit was extremely creative and well-done.

The Palmer House: A Frank Lloyd House built for Bill and Mary Palmer in the 1950’s. It is a stunning property with separate tea house that overlooks the woods in a beautiful landscaped setting. It is a three bedroom, two bath home that can be rented from $350 to $500 a night. What a great way to stay in a Frank Lloyd Wright design.

The Fairy Doors of Ann Arbor: As we walked through the town a friend pointed out some tiny painted doors known as the Fairy Doors. There are ten small doors on public buildings that started in 2005. Looking for them has become a cult following, so make sure to look down!!! Check out the map.
