Cities, big and small

Praise for Ann Arbor at Atlantic Cities by a writer who grew up here longing to leave, experienced the experience goods of NYC and Chicago, and happily returned.

Bonus unique experience: see Zingerman's praised for its low prices.

More seriously, not all small cities are created equal. Ann Arbor has a lot going on intellectually and culturally that even a lot of other college towns do not, because it draws in visitors from the Detroit suburbs.

Oh, and I once went from sitting at the desk in my office at the university to sitting in a chair at my gate at DTW in 45 minutes. Not bad (though it usually takes a bit longer).
