With the cool air arriving, now is the time to plan a trip to take in some great fall festivals in Greater Lansing. We can’t think of a better feeling than putting on your favorite boots, pulling out that cozy sweater and heading out to enjoy all that fall has to offer.

For many, football is more than just a game–it’s sacred. And tailgating isn’t just a pleasurable pastime, it’s a mandatory ritual. Just like clockwork, fans gather around the stadium as pregame activities commence. And just as most fans expect to partake in at least a few rounds of cornhole before the game, they also expect to run into a few stereotypical people along the way. The lady that shows up in pink and knows nothing about football, the “tailgating mom” who brings sunscreen and sweatshirts for everyone. One thing is certain, even though all Spartans may bleed green, they definitely come in all different types. Watch this video to see if you can find someone you know, or maybe even yourself.

Walk around in downtown Lansing and you can find an abundance of details that might just be overlooked if you’re intent on just getting somewhere. Slow down and look closer and take notice of workmanship that you just don’t see in newer buildings. This is craftsmanship at its finest. If you look, you can see that the buildings are telling you their story.

We're lucky in Michigan, and of course in Greater Lansing, to have 4 distinct seasons in the year. Spring, Summer, Winter and Football season. Around here its Spartan football, and its fabulous return means a lot of good times and a rush of warm memories of victories passed.
