Lansing is the capital of Michigan. It is mostly in Ingham County, although portions of the city extend west into Eaton County and north into Clinton County. With many family friendly attractions and events, Lansing truly reflects the very best of Mid-Michigan. The Capitol City invites you to relax and discover the unique style and hidden surprises of Greater Lansing and its surrounding communities. Downtown Lansing is a bustling commercial and entertainment mecca. It is the centerpiece of metro-Lansing and boasts a collection of entertainment hot spots, urban lofts, one-of-a-kind shopping and more than 40 dining options, all within walking distance of the State Capitol, the River Trail, Lansing City Market, museums and galleries, three higher education facilities and Cooley Law School Stadium, home of the Lansing Lugnuts.

You can download a Walking Tour Booklet that details the history of Lansing and places we visited.
