Eastern Michigan University Campus - Hinton Real Estate Group

Because the winters are long, when the weather is good everyone wants to be outside. Fortunately, outdoor living is easy to do in Ypsilanti. Along the banks of the Huron River and throughout the area lie acres of parkland, and the river itself is a prime spot for fishing, canoeing, and kayaking. Check out Frog Island Park, with its amphitheater, soccer fields, and community garden, connected to neighboring Riverside Park by a three-pointed “tridge.”
