Ann Arbor’s Fairy Doors

While renovating his century-old home, Jonathan B. Wright, his young daughters made an interesting discovery: tiny small doors scattered throughout their home. When opened it leads to other very small doors with tiny railings inside. This miniatures space even had windows that would let the light seep through. Several years later, Jonathan becomes a Fairyologist, giving life to these small doors popping up all over town.

Perhaps the most beautiful place to see these fairy doors is at the Ann Arbor District Library. It’s home to several fairy doors and a bookcase full of fairy tales. The library is also home to The Peaceable Kingdom, a fairy gift shop where the ‘fairies’ set up their common store. It’s filled with acorns, pennies, toys, and other sorts of ‘fairy’ things.

This little off the road destination serves America’s favorite steak sandwiches and bestselling Korean food. They have a good number of menu options for a reasonable price. They have unique pairings as their food comes along with free refreshing drinks or just plain water. You could just go here for a quick bite as they serve really fast and they also have small party meals good for 2 to 4 persons.
