Welcome to Ann Arbor’s SmartTours, celebrating the Bicentennial of the founding of Ann Arbor in 1824. Your smartphone can give you access to fifteen self-guided online tours, each with its own theme. Each of the 177 tour sites includes a photograph and a narrative describing its significance to Ann Arbor.
You are encouraged to spend the Bicentennial year visiting each site. Print a copy of the Tours Checklist to note each of your visits. If during the Bicentennial year you visit, read the narrative, and check off every site, you may request a Bicentennial Recognition of Completion certificate from the Mayor’s office.
