Who doesn’t love a fall color tour? If you’re looking for a quick road trip that allows you to take in the kaleidoscope of fall colors all while providing stops to sample delicious uniquely Michigan tastes, we’ve got you covered. We’ve lined up a weekend itinerary that can be customized and enjoyed whether you want a romantic escape or a fun outing with the kids.

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.

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.
