||Ypsilanti is a progressive city with a great community vibe and arts scene. Ypsilanti has the second largest contiguous historic district in the state of Michigan which includes both downtown Ypsilanti, along Michigan Avenue, and the Depot Town area adjacent to Frog Island Park and Riverside Park, which features many specialty shops, bars and grills, and a farmers' market. The history of Ypsilanti is still present and vibrant in today’s shops, dining and entertainment scene. With the Downtown and Depot Town districts only minutes apart they utilize their beautifully preserved historic areas to add interest to the variety of cultures present in the art, music and shopping.
Ypsilanti is home to Eastern Michigan University and expands beyond the downtown districts to include 23,000+ acres of public park and recreation areas that help make up the Washtenaw County area. You’re just minutes from town and can find golfing, mountain biking, canoeing, hiking or natural scenery to relax in. Alternatively, you can travel to neighboring Ann Arbor (6 miles west of Ypsilanti) or Detroit (18 miles east of Ypsilanti) for sporting events, concerts and cultural excursions.
||The B-3 general business districts are designed to provide sites for more diversified business types which would often be incompatible with the pedestrian movement in the local business district or the community business district.
