Summer Guide to Lansing

Lansing has become one of the hottest housing markets in the country, and with all there is to do and see in the Greater Lansing area, it’s no wonder. There are other reasons Lansing has become a popular destination for new home buyers including a great job market, affordable housing, and a cost of living that’s gentle on budgets.

With summer underway, it’s a great time to highlight some of the terrific attractions in Greater Lansing. If you’re looking for something to do or you are new to the area, here’s are some of our favorite stops.


Get Up, Get Going…

Grab a hot cup of coffee at Strange Matter – or iced if you prefer, and then go see what Lansing has to offer.

Next, stop in for breakfast at Dusty’s Cellar to sample some of Lansing’s best pastries.


Break Time!

Take a walk in the park to burn off breakfast, or just to take in the beautiful views.

Walk the 20 miles of River Trail and run right into Old Town.

Stop by Hawk Island for a huge selection of activities that includes fishing, volleyball, and so much more.

Lansing’s Lovely Later Too
