Make the most of the warmer weather by enjoying your food and libations al fresco. There’s something wonderful about eating outside, whether it’s a romantic tete-a-tete or a small gathering of friends or family. Out of the over 100 restaurants offering outdoor dining in Greater Lansing, I've chosen ten of my favorite patios where I may be found. 

We know the #lovelansing community is eager to support local dining establishments. So we polled several of our GLCVB members and asked them to share some highlights about their restaurants. Get to know the faces and stories (behind the masks) that serve up delicious dishes in Greater Lansing. Unique in their own way, we encourage you to try them all!

Usher in the fall season on Greater Lansing’s Makers & Shakers Trail. Discover 15+ options for patios to enjoy the vibrant views and fall flavored spirits and brews. If you're not quite comfortable being out and about many have curbside pickup options as well. Either way, you are sure to make the most of an autumn day in Greater Lansing, cheers!

After spending practically all of spring indoors, I'll take any excuse to be outside this summer. Despite my extra time to practice my own cooking and drink mixing skills, I crave having a professional cocktail from some of my favorite restaurants. Having a quiet, sunny space to sit while drinking is just an added bonus to the experience. 

There are all kinds of spirits that help you feel merry and bright during the holidays. Whether you're getting together with family, friends or co-workers, discovering a certain kind of libation in Michigan’s capital region can be both pretty and tasty this time of year.
