There are a lot of great cities and towns in West Michigan that make it a great destination for summer vacations, or for long weekend getaways. However, West Michigan also regularly contributes a couple of area codes to Top Ten lists of the best places to live in the US.
Lansing: A Top Ten Place To Live
One of those top destinations is Lansing, Michigan. Nestled a little East of Grand Rapids and perched on the banks of Michigan’s mighty Grand River, Lansing is home to great schools, beautiful parks, fun attractions, and so much more.
This week on At Home with Eastbrook Homes, tune in as we chat with Eric Hultgren and Eastbrook’s own Carin Whybrew about the Greater Lansing area and why it could be the perfect choice for your next home.
A Small-Town Feel With Big-Town Amenities

As the home of Michigan State University, Lansing also has great education opportunities to offer. The area features top-rated hospitals with several healthcare organizations set to open new locations in 2021 and beyond.
So Many Adventures, So Close To Home
Lansing also features Amtrak rail lines between its walkable downtown and bigger cities like Chicago, making it easy to run off for a weekend adventure.
