Won’t you join us in supporting our local attractions and businesses this summer? Why not plan a #LoveLansing-focused outing and get to know all the fun and entertaining places that the Lansing area has to offer?
This week we are focusing on some fun outdoor activities.
This is your chance to Go Nuts! in downtown Lansing at Jackson Field. With affordable tickets ($8-$15) and promotional specials (Wednesday Dog Days, Thirsty Thursdays, Front Line Workers Fridays, Fireworks Saturdays and Kids Day Sundays,) you’re bound to enjoy going back time and time again. Games continue with six-day homestands through September 18th.
Whether you want to rent a canoe, kayak, paddleboard or bike, River Town Adventures has what you need. Paddle around in a canoe or kayak right on the Grand River in Downtown Lansing, hit up a local lake like at Crego Park or Hawk Island Park or take a liveried excursion for an hour or more paddle on the river.
This 18-hole natural bent grass putting course comes complete with water hazards, sand traps and rolling terrain. This is a perfect outing for the whole family and will satisfy the experienced golfer who may want to brush up their putting game and a great introduction to golf for the young ones.
Much like golf, only with a soccer ball and giant holes, FootGolf is available at both The Falcon and at Royal Scot. This is worth a try whether you’re a skilled soccer player or not. We guarantee lots of do-overs and mulligans on this.
This little-known natural area along Wardell Road in Delta Township’s Anderson Park is a great option for new mountain bikers and veteran riders. Find river views, rolling hills and a few tough spots to keep you entertained. Options of a two or four mile loop can take you either close to the water or through the woods.
Greater Lansing is home to quite a number of disc golf courses that take you through rolling meadows, through wooded paths and lots of obstacles to challenge your skills.
Greater Lansing Golf
With affordable rates and so many options, each of Greater Lansing's golf courses offer it’s own personality and challenges. You can find the home course for the MSU golf program at Forest Akers, a great municipal course at Groesbeck, the rolling terrain and the signature #17 island green at Eagle Eye plus so many other favorites all right here in Greater Lansing.
This is fun for everybody in the family. With kids games and entertainment, a fruit house winery and hard cider options for the grown ups, a bakery and seasonal fruits that will put a smile on everyone's face.
All aboard with Captain Chris as he takes the Michigan Princess along the Grand River out of Grand River park. Lunch cruises and other options available.
So, join us in supporting our local attractions and businesses this summer. As you can imagine, it has been a tough time for them and it’s time for Lansing residents to step up, keep your dollars local and support them.
