Visit Ypsi Billboard

Visit Ypsi Billboard Where did that billboard come from? One idea can transform into a large-scale reality, and that’s the heart of Ypsilanti. Thanks to the help and minds of many individuals, there is now a beautiful work of art in the parking lot off of Huron. That’s me underneath the amazing artwork of Caleb […]

Following breakfast was a stroll down to Mill Creek where we found the most beautiful path as a part of the Border-to-Border Trail (which will lead you all the way back to Ypsilanti). We saw bikers, walkers, and runners along the trail. The pathway extends into the forest, surrounding you with trees and nature.
