In the hustle and bustle of daily life with deadlines, overcommitments and trying to fulfill the needs of others we often forget that we need, for ourselves to stop (or at least slow down) and literally smell the flowers. Taking time for yourself, breathing deeply and getting in touch with nature is easy in Greater Lansing.

The school year may have come to a close but the learning doesn’t have to end when summer vacation begins. How about taking the kids to the campus of Michigan State University (hello future Spartans) and finding all kinds of places that they’ll enjoy without having to pay a tuition bill?
When there’s still a lot of sunlight after dinner and we’re in the midst of beautiful weather, who else besides me looks forward to relaxing and spending a couple of hours outside, just chilling and listening to some music?
I’m not even really sure what arugula is, but it definitely gives a little kick to Urbandale Farm’s spicy spring mix. The scent and flavor go way above and beyond the norm for salad greens.

Eagle Eye Golf Club in Lansing regularly gets rated as 18 of the best holes in Michigan, and even among the best in the country. With an iconic island green replica of the famous 17th hole at the TPC at Sawgrass, Eagle Eye is a must-play that should be on every golfer’s bucket list if they haven’t already played it.

With a favorite club in hand and the hole little more than 100 yards away, it’s still nerve-wracking to stand on the 17th tee at Eagle Eye Golf Club. Even with only pride at stake.

Feeling the need to reconnect with friends, take a break from the stress of work, family and boring weekends? It’s time for a Girls Getaway!
With the sun out and the flowers blooming, I feel the need to shake off the winter blues and have some fun with the girls. As “the planner” of our squad, the coordination of travel and activities often falls to me. With my friends now spread across the Midwest, it is important to find a place that is centrally located and easy to get to. This is what led to our latest destination, Lansing, Michigan.

If we had to pick one month as our favorite of the year, June would definitely be a contender. Why, you ask? Oh, let’s see…it has the longest list of festivals, you can finally enjoy warm-weather attractions like the Lansing River Trail, there is an outdoor concert almost every day, etc., etc. Take advantage of this eventful month and add a few of these summer festivals to your calendar.
With a slight chance of rain later in the day on Saturday, it looks like the forecast for Be A Tourist In Your Own Town this year is a good one. But it’s always a prudent idea to make provisions just in case the rain starts to fall.

There is a group of like-minded attractions that are open during Be A Tourist in Your Own Town this year that I think that folks will enjoy whether they’re eight or eighty years old. For sure, you could follow the crowds and hit up favorites like Impression 5 Science Center or Potter Park Zoo, but here’s a suggestion for something just a bit different and some of these things you just can’t do every day.
