Lori has been an enthusiastic cheerleader for the Lansing area for 20 years. She still gets excited about all the fun things there are to see and do in her adopted hometown yet hasn't quite figured out how to fit everything she wants to do into a weekend. Favorite things include a fall afternoon cheering the Spartans on to victory, a great classic car show like Car Capital in July, a stroll through one of the many beautiful gardens in the area, a kayak ride with her dog Charlie and a delicious dinner shared with family and friends at a local eatery. Her goal? Simple. It's to inspire people to love Lansing as much as she does! #LoveLansing

It's time for Spartan football and a season of great anticipation. Both tailgates and in-person viewing are happening this year. But if the thought of being packed into Spartan Stadium gives you second thoughts, think about this. A pre-order phone call is all you need to make an enjoyable tailgate take-out meal. It's easy, safe and comfortable. As long as you're sporting your green and white spirit wear, go ahead and enjoy the game from the comfort of your couch or easy chair. 

It’s lunchtime in Greater Lansing and you’re trying to figure out where to go. You may be trying to schedule a business lunch meeting, visiting the area, or just want to go with your co-workers to grab a bite to eat. And then it starts. “Where do you want to go?” and then “What’s open for lunch?” If you’re looking for something locally owned, with lunchtime hours, why not try the following restaurants?

Remember when the kids were little and were super happy to go pretty much anywhere? To the park and playground or the zoo or a parking lot carnival? Once they hit the teen years it may seem like its impossible to entice them to do anything with the family. Because, you know, everything’s lame. Or boring. We can help. A visit to Michigan’s capital city of Lansing can include some great recreation for the young adults in your family.

Do the kids need some cooling down and a place to truly chill out? Find multiple swimming options and even some great beach areas in our county and state parks in the Greater Lansing region as well as other regional cities. Whether you’re looking for a SplashPad, a pool or a stretch of beach with some lake swimming, you can it all right here in Greater Lansing.

While the word commencement means the beginning of one thing, graduation indicates the evolving from one thing to another. Whether your student is heading into the workplace, higher education or going on to something entirely different, their graduation ceremony is something you don’t want to miss.
