As summer winds down take a moment to see if you've hit all of our Top 10 Things to Do on your #lovelansing Summer Bucket List. These are our top picks that every Michigander should experience in the Greater Lansing region. We've still got great weather for weeks to come so if you haven't explored them all - there's still time! The best part? They all make it easy to social distance so you can enjoy them safely and responsibly.

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.


Most people want to visit a place where there are fun things to do, great places to go for entertainment and delicious places to eat. When you finally have some free time, you want to know that you can find all kinds of activities, music, theater or recreation options nearby. It sure is nice to get out of town, make some memories and come home with a satisfied feeling that you’ve gotten your money’s worth and that the visit was more than you ever expected. So why not add another option for your next Michigan Staycation and take a short road trip to the heart of Michigan and the state capital - Lansing.

Have a four-legged family member who hates to be left behind? Next time you schedule a Greater Lansing getaway, bring the pup along.

What will they tell their dog friends all about when they get back home? You never know but it might be something like this:

Golf in Michigan’s capital region includes a great array of courses that offer opportunities for every level of golfer at affordable prices. Golfers appreciate the up north feel at Timber Ridge, take pride at a Big Ten university golf team’s home course at Forest Akers and hold the municipal course at Groesbeck close to their heart. Locals feel that every one of Lansing’s courses offers it’s own challenges and rewards.


When you look around the Lansing area, what do you see? Do you see what I see? Colorful murals, cool art installations and beautiful gardens dotting the landscape? And when you want to hear and experience music, film or theater, do you know where to go? Michigan State University campus offers the Wharton Center for Broadway shows, the Broad art shows speak to world wide issues and the Lansing Symphony is a cultural gem. Let's take a look at ALL the places that can enhance your senses and bring music and joy to our lives.

Won’t you join us in supporting our local attractions and businesses this summer?
