"Handsome Little Adrian" Adrian by yooperprof

Adrian Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 17 photos

Southeastern Rural Michigan

Adrian is one of those sleepy midwestern towns where the outside world feels remarkably far away.

Downtown Adrian

Okay, I know that you're probably not going to visit Adrian unless your grand-aunt lives there or your best friend from high school is attending Adrian College. It's not exactly on the road to anywhere. Adrian is about 40 miles southwest of Ann Arbor, and about 30 miles northwest of Toledo Ohio. It's at the crossroads of US Highway 223 and Michigan SR 52: a pretty anonymous place. Nonetheless, it still has an identity - it is not simply another W_____t location.

    I was a bit surprised to see how showy some of the buildings are. what a beautiful contrast to the prefab sameness of the suburbs. Your nana made you go to the store to get milk in the dead of winter?

    Okay, I dont have an american nana, but I can see why you were reminded of yours. I probably will never go to Adrian - Places like this really have a place on VT, Paris you know a lot about anyway, but Adrian...!!!
