FOX 2 Zip Trip: What to do in Ypsilanti

FOX 2 is hitting the road, and taking 'The Nine' on our annual summer zip trips. This month, we're heading to Ypsilanti. 

Are you in town? Heading to Elvisfest this weekend? We'd love to see and share your  photos! Post them on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #Fox2ZipTrip. 

The Michigan Elvisfest is July 10-11, but if you won't be in town for that, there's still plenty to do during a later trip. 


Just saying the name is fun. 

There's no denying you've hit Ypsi when you see the historic water tower. The small town of 22,000 and is home to Eastern Michigan University. 

Ypsi's Depot Town has found a way to preserve the history of its city while staying progressive and innovative, with a variety of restaurants to choose from.
