There's always something exciting going on in Ann Arbor, which benefits from its popularity as a college town. Concordia University, University of Michigan, and others have campuses here.
One great thing about living here is all the opportunities to get involved in the community. Local colleges and their students frequently sponsor charitable events. There are all sorts of volunteering options for people of all ages, skills, and abilities.
Other local organizations, such as police departments, are frequently involved.
One terrific example: The University of Michigan Polar Plunge!
