Despite always saying that the only colors worth a dang around here are the Michigan State University colors of green and white, Greater Lansing has some pretty stunning foliage displays when Fall rolls around. While most folks will be sitting and driving in their car, we’re going to suggest that you get out and enjoy the beauty up close and personal. Here are suggestions for the best places to see those gorgeous reds, glorious oranges and vibrant yellows.

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.

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.

Be A Tourist In Your Own Town is the perfect family event. Kids love the hands-on crafts and museums, parents love that it’s affordable, yet some might wonder, what’s in it for me? If you think Be A Tourist is all about face-painting and balloon animal twisting, you’re missing out on a whole other side. Yes, Be A Tourist has many kid-friendly options, but it also has numerous events and attractions the “older younger” crowd–millennials–will enjoy.
