Ann Arbor really shouldn't be included in this list for reasons alluded to already, but while it is an outstanding city for its size, my 2 issues are:
1. It's a College town. An outstanding example of one for sure, but it's still a College town
2. Its proximity to Detroit really gives it more buzz and energy. Being from Michigan, I have generally always felt that with Detroit's decay and crime, a lot of the yuppies in metro Detroit have turned to other cities like Ann Arbor to become their playground
