Ypsilanti (named after Greek war hero Demetrius Ypsilanti) has a funky community vibe and a fresh arts scene. “Ypsi”, as it’s affectionately known, has a rich history, which shines through in its vibrant shopping, dining and entertainment scenes – and is inspiring a resurgence of visitors from near and far. Three main districts, Downtown and Depot Town, and West Cross are historic areas infused with innovative, bohemian, locally-driven businesses. Sometimes overlooked because of its more famous neighbor (Ann Arbor, Michigan), Ypsilanti has its own inimitable, groovy, authentic ambiance worthy of a weekend getaway.
**Downtown Construction Update: Roads are temporarily under construction. Give yourself plenty of time and check out the city's latest updates and detour/ and parking suggestions before visiting. We encourage everyone to come support these incredible events and Ypsi businesses.**
