If you are looking for a great way to spend an enjoyable – and very affordable – afternoon in a family friendly environment, look no further than the Potter Park Zoo. Michigan's first and oldest zoo, this Lansing area landmark has provided visitors with the opportunity to see a wide variety of animals from around the world for more than a century.

Summer is in the home stretch, but there’s still time to make great family memories before school starts. In a few months we’ll all be hunkered down indoors for another Michigan winter, so it’s time to enjoy warm weather outdoor activities with your kids before they are back on the school bus.

What’s cold, white and celebrated all over? Winter break! Well, at least in Michigan. Sure, it might not be as lengthy as summer break and you can’t shouldn’t wear flip-flops, but it’s time off from school and that’s exciting enough. If you have one or more kids home from school, keep them entertained with one of these fun and affordable things to do.
