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.

While the word commencement means the beginning of one thing, graduation indicates the evolving from one thing to another. Whether your student is heading into the workplace, higher education or going on to something entirely different, their graduation ceremony is something you don’t want to miss.

While the winter weather may be gray and gloomy – Greater Lansing’s artists and attractions have compiled fun coloring activities to brighten your world with color. Whether you prefer colored pencils or crayons, coloring is a great stress reliever for adults and has multiple benefits for the little ones as they work on their fine motor skills. Check out the list below and pick your favorite #lovelansing pages to download. And remember, If you share your completed pages on social media be sure to use the #lovelansing.

As 2020 comes to a close we thought we'd take a moment to reflect on the year. The #lovelansing community shined throughout 2020 amidst a global pandemic. We saw our member businesses creativity and innovation to keep our visitors safe and healthy. And we watched Greater Lansing come together to show support to our local businesses and to each other. The gallery of images highlighted below showcase our top picks from 2020 and demonstrate that together we are #tourismstrong!

Dear Spartans, 
 
By this time, all of us know about President Stanley’s latest email regarding the fall of 2020. Many of us, myself included, were just moving into our new apartments or had already settled into our living space a few days prior. Due to the ongoing threat of COVID-19, as well as recent university incidents, MSU has declared that classes will be held solely online, with a few exceptions for certain degrees as well as a few performance/experience based courses. 

For so many reasons it’s a fantastic thing to live near a Big Ten college town. Sure there is the fun of a home football Saturday and yes, there is the buzz each fall when a crop of new students come in to make our home their new home-away-from-home, but the thing I think is the best about living near a college town is the community assets that the university puts at our doorstep.
