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.

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.


Most people want to visit a place where there are fun things to do, great places to go for entertainment and delicious places to eat. When you finally have some free time, you want to know that you can find all kinds of activities, music, theater or recreation options nearby. It sure is nice to get out of town, make some memories and come home with a satisfied feeling that you’ve gotten your money’s worth and that the visit was more than you ever expected. So why not add another option for your next Michigan Staycation and take a short road trip to the heart of Michigan and the state capital - Lansing.

Spring. Warmer weather. Outdoors beckons. Mother Nature crooks her finger at you to not waste a moment in the house. Flowers bud then bloom, opening their petals to the sun. It’s time to take full advantage of any outdoor recreation you can find. Greater Lansing has a lot to offer both as a spectator or a participant.

A strong culture brings out the best in businesses, community groups and charitable organizations. Employees and team members feel motivated and valued. The mission statement and goals are clear. Everyone feels like someone has their back.
