ANN ARBOR, MI - Given its nickname, “Tree Town”, Ann Arbor is one of Detroit’s top destinations for fall with its super spectacular fall foliage. The University of Michigan campus is the perfect and ideal spot for leaf-peeping in the crisp air.

Here are some of the most famous spots at the University of Michigan if you’re up for fall colors in this autumn season.

1. Nichols Arboretum

Famously known by locals as The Arb, Nichol’s Arboretum is a hidden treasure near the U-M hospital and downtown Ann Arbor. The Arb is close to many other attractions such as the U-M Museum of Natural History and the Lunch Room Bakery & Cafe. When you come here, expect trails, riverfront, picnic area, restrooms, peony and lilac garden, native and exotic trees, and shrubs that were masterfully crafted into a naturalistic landscape by O.C. Simons in 1907.

2. Matthaei Botanical Gardens

You can find stunning maple groves further downtown at U-M Matthaei Botanical Garden just further downtown. It offers a beautiful indoor conservatory, extensive formal gardens, gift shop, and walking trails, and spans over 90 acres of stunning views of autumn scenery,

3. Law Quad

The beauty and functionality the Quad has to offer is the factor both in student satisfaction and in the school’s success. Moreover, Michigan’s excellent library became the concentration of scholars, and the serene setting attracts a great many visitors within the profession. Although the Quad is gorgeous any time of the year, it is exceptionally beautiful in autumn colors. With architecture comparable with that of the fictional Hogwarts from the Harry Potter book and film series, the Quad is easily a popular spot for picnics and relaxation on campus.
