Matt Vande Bunte is a Grand Rapids-based writer whose current project is checking items off his LAN 150 Bucket List. In a previous life, Matt visited the Capitol with his school class and found himself back in the rotunda as a journalist covering Lansing and Michigan politics. Now his focus has turned a bit less serious, writing about his travels across Michigan and finding a valid excuse for playing hooking on the putting course at Hawk Hollow.

So, you’ve been tasked with planning a company outing. (Gee, thanks, boss.) Or maybe a big family reunion. (Happy to do it, mom.) Need help? The Greater Lansing Convention & Visitors Bureau (GLCVB) gives free assistance to professional meeting planners all the time, helping them pull off killer events in the Capital Region. The same rules of thumb apply to your gathering.

Whether you’d rather hit the links for the last few hours of sunlight or hit the bar for distinctive craft beer and spirits, Michigan's Capital region can help you relax. The middle of the Mitten has so much to experience you’ll wish your conference would last another day.
