Just amazing and so soothing for a walk. Sound of water makes you so content to enjoy the place to the core. Enjoy the nature at its best.

The canoe livery in Ann Arbor is an amazing experience. The level of the river will decide for you what is available but anyway you will discover a hidden and natural part of the city ! Expect to be wet... Very wet.

If you are not a canoe/kayak person (like me) I suggest a wonderful walk through Argo Park. Walk away from the livery via the parking lot to the path in the trees, keeping the river on your left side. You enter a gorgeous wooded area...More
