Welcome to the City of Ypsilanti!

Ypsilanti is located just east of Ann Arbor and 35 miles from Detroit. Ypsilanti is known for its rich historical facilities, river side parks and is also home of Eastern Michigan University, which it collaborates with regularly. 

Ypsilanti prides itself on its green initiatives, including city-wide LED streetlights, the use of solar panels to produce energy, and a curbside textile recycling program. Ypsilanti has a large array of parks with over 10 for recreational purposes and a vast number of festivals that take place along the Huron River, bringing in large crowds of citizens and tourists alike, including the Heritage Festival, Elvisfest, Beer Fest, The Color Run and several car shows. 

The City has a growing downtown area and the historic Depot town with many thriving restaurants and attractions such as the Hudson Car Museum, and the fire fighters museum. Ypsilanti is also known to be rich of diversity and its many artistic endeavors to help people express themselves creatively. 

The City of Ypsilanti has been awarded a Foodie for best food destination, and in 2015 was ranked sixth in best place to live if you’re single. With its growing list of activities and population, Ypsilanti is the best kept secret in southeast Michigan!
