Won’t you join us in supporting our local attractions and businesses this summer? It’s been a tough road for them and it’s time for Lansing residents to step up, keep your dollars local and support them. Why not plan a #LoveLansing-focused outing and get to know all the fun and entertaining places that the Lansing area has to offer?
Whether your family consists of 2 or 20, you can find so many places that will pique the interest of each unique personality that makes up your whole family.
This week we will be highlighting some of our Family Friendly Attractions
This is a local favorite over the years, and you may recognize it as you drive by on W.est Saginaw on your way to Grand ledge. It has the great putt-putt course out fron, but did you know it also has batting cages, a driving range and a go-cart track? Escape to adventure at this great place
If you love to hear the “All Skate” announcement, then you've probably enjoyed roller skating in the past. Edru Skate can be either a walk (or roll) down memory lane or a new experience for the small members of your family. With Roller and Stroller times, a laser tag area, an ice cream shop and options for parties, etc., it makes a fun family outing.
Whether the bumpers are up or down, no matter your ability, there's something fun and bonding about bowling. And Spare Time can add even more to your bowling experience. Find axe throwing, an escape room (Escapology) bumper cars and an arcade.
Located both in Mason and East Lansing, City Limits has both bowling and a great sports grill. Beach volleyball can be found at the Mason location.
Royal Scot is home to both great golf but also fun bowling.
This place is pure fun and excitement. There's go-carting for sure. But when you participate in Combat Karting, then it's gone up to a whole different level. Think Mario Kart IRL . Then tack on axe throwing, a rage room, racing simulators plus food and you've got a whole afternoon/evening's worth of entertainment.
This multi level laser tag facility is a ton of fun for a family. Parents versus kids or boys versus girls. It's all in good fun, but when you're done you can also stick around for mini glow golf, bounce house, bumper cars and a great arcade.
If there are kids in your family who are bouncing off the walls, then this is the place to be. It's a trampoline park for littles and bigs, with dodge ball, basketball and agility options. They have a fun arcade area and coming soon find an all new escape room that you'll walk through and discover clues right in front of you, not on the walls or in a room that will help you escape.
AL!VE is open to everyone and everyone is welcome. It offers many free activities like open basketball in SOAR, open rock climbing on ASCEND, EXPLORE – the walking path, and access to courtyards PONDER and REFLECT; plus equipment for the activity gym, and e-readers and MP3 players.
This HO scale model railroad club is located in the former Grand Trunk Western Millett depot and is dedicated to the preservation of railroad history both past and present. This is a multi-level HO scale layout complete with railroad yards, cities, industrial scenes, rolling countrysides, mountains, bridges, and much more. Visitors can get a bird’s eye view of the model train action from an overhead walkway. The club is located approximately on half mile east of Woldumar Nature Center, and is open non-holiday Thursdays from 7 PM to 10 PM.
