Minutes from Ann Arbor, Yet a World Apart

Trees and quaint homes line the quiet streets of this little city, lush parks dot the suburban cityscape, scenic trails wend their way through the urban bustle of its historic downtown, and nearby, the Huron River and Mill Creek offer a tranquil escape from urban life. Though it’s just minutes from Ann Arbor, Dexter is a world far removed.
