Ann Arbor is a city in as well as the county seat of Washtenaw County, Michigan, and currently ranks as the sixth-largest city in the state of Michigan with a population of over 113,000, having been surpassed by Lansing in the last official U.S. Census. Ann Arbor sits outside the Detroit Metropolitan Area, and thus anchors its own; the Ann Arbor Metropolitan Statistical Area, as it is officially known, includes all of Washtenaw County and is home to a total population of over 344,700 residents.

The city was founded in 1824 by a couple of land speculators, and was originally spelled “Annarbour” before the name was changed to its current spelling at least by 1827, as in that year it was named the county seat of Washtenaw County and was officially known as “Ann Arbor” by that time. The city today is primarily a college town, as it is the home of the University of Michigan, which moved to Ann Arbor from Detroit. The University of Michigan has a large impact on the city’s economy, and is a major draw for new residents, particularly new college students entering University life for the first time. As such, the population of Ann Arbor generally sees its ups and downs, with the most people usually living in the town during the fall. Many auto transport companies offer student discounts for shipments into Ann Arbor as well.
