    Ann Arbor (pop. 112,000) combines the comfort and charm of a small city
    with the excitement of a cosmopolitan center. Acknowledged as the center of
    the state's booming high technology industry and a cultural mecca as well,
    the Ann Arbor landscape is a blend of parks, office buildings, boutiques,
    historic preservation areas, shopping malls, bike paths, busy tree-lined
    streets, and the open air Farmers' Market. It exerts a charm that has
    turned many students to life-long residents or at least regular visitors.
    Ann Arbor's extensive parks and recreation facilities provide ample
    opportunity for exercise and relaxation. There is sailing, canoeing, and
    windsurfing on the Huron River, which flows through the city. The nearby
    countryside features lakes, woods and productive farmland, ideal for
    bicycle jaunts and picnics. These attributes have led Money Detroit is less
    than an hour's drive and an international airport is only 25 minutes away.
    Chicago is four hours away by train. More information can be found at
