    I've been coming to this zoo my entire life and it has done nothing but get better and have better facilities. The ONLY reason that it's a 4-star zoo is that if you are a non-resident, it's $14 for an adult ticket and there isn't many animals out at the moment. It's maybe a two hour excursion maximum, although nice. Sometimes parking is free, sometime they have fun events! Definitely worth the visit.

    One of the most interesting things about the interior design of our state capitol is that many of the finishes are faux paint effects. Years ago I used to walk through the capitol on my way to work, from the downtown Lansing bus stop. I could walk up the steps and open the enormous wooden front doors. Now, for security and preservation reasons, those entrances are no longer used. There are many unique characteristics of our capitol which you can learn from tour guides.

    There is a lot to see here. Everything from old prehistory up to 1970+. The mining part was very interesting and was an entire floor of information.

    Very good museum. The $8 price was very fair for everything that is there. We went on a Saturday and it was empty with maybe 1 or 2 other couples there. But - it is FREE on Sunday and they said it is a lot more crowded. So keep that in mind.

    Took our 5 year old grandson and 15 month old grandson. The older boy had a wonderful time. He explored everything and we had to pull him away when we had to leave for dinner. The baby enjoyed it too, but obviously didn't know what was going on. Highly recommend it for children. And, during these COVID times, they had buckets to put the pieces you touch in a bucket to be sanitized and had hand sanitizers scattered around the exhibits.

    I've been to the REOlds museum a few times. I've always liked older cars, especially Oldsmobiles. My 1st Car was a 1965 Olds Dynamic 88 sedan. You can see classic Oldsmobiles and learn about the Olds history. See many different significant Olds cars, and REO's. If you want a ride in an actual 1910's car, make plans on being in Lansing on the Tourist in your Town event at the museum. The museum often has rare Olds items from time to time. Like the prototype Olds 425 hemi v8 engine. Too bad that motor never went into production. Would have made the 442 a serious contender against Mopars hemi cars.

    The captain is a funny guy, telling stories and keeping his patrons happy. An easy cruise up and down the river. We were there for a buffet with a company and it was very good. They have a small bar and I understand some cruises feature live music. Relaxing to sit anywhere on the deck with a drink. I would go for an event for sure.

    The snow tubing setup is really great. Nice professional people. Had a long wait time though. Snacks and hot coffee available.

    I love walking the rivertrail all through town, love to bring my dog with me and look at all the cool art all along the trail. The trail is huge so you can get to it from all sorts of spots. Great for biking and rollerblading too

    Old Town is a collection of bars, restaurants and specialty shops on the north side of Lansing just south and east of the airport centered at the intersection of Caesar Chavez and Turner street. Some of the best restaurants in Lansing are located here. The specialty store seem a little forced but hey if they can make a buck more power to them. The whole Old Town area is clean, safe, well maintained, well lit at night and has a really fun atmosphere. I like window shopping at Elderly Instruments and visiting Breinke fish ladder. Dining at Sir Pizza and looking out the window at the river flowing by is an incredibly refreshing and relaxing experience. Preuss Pets pet store is filled with exotic animals and fish. The stores decorations are worth a visit alone. The staff is wonderful as are the customers. Golden Harvest Restaurant on the north end serves the finest breakfast food on the planet. Olympic Broil just up the road will sell you a burger and fries that you will remember for many hours. Cross the bridge going north on Larch Street and Old Town disappears in about a hundred feet. It is like an alternate universe that you need to seek out to find and even notice. Once you discover Old Town and its charm you will return often.

    Great for kids and dogs, with easy trails and a creative playground area. Nice way to get outdoors and get some fresh air. Saw people snowshoeing and cross country skiing. A good place to go to if you have a limited amount of time, but you still want some exercise.

    The Turner-Dodge House is part of Lansing's state park system. You can book a tour for only $5 per person and learn about the people involved in the early days of Lansing as well as receive a tour of Lansing's finest mansion.

    Spartan Stadium is AWESOME!!!!. It is very impressive from the outside as you approach, especially from the south where there are championship flags to get you connected with the rich history and tradition of MSU football, and the giant murals on the outside. The new video monitors are spectacular!!! There is one large board at the south end, and two smaller (but still plenty large) at the north end. And a bank of connected monitors frame the north side of the stadium, providing cool visual designs and accents. Never seen anything like it in a football stadium. Really brings the place to life.

    Great sight lines too. And LOUD!!! You can feel the vibe when the Spartans are rolling. Plenty of concessions and bathrooms (gimme a Melting Moments chip-wich please).

    The only complaint is getting down from the upper tier. There is only one exit; a graded ramp at the south end. Seems like the damn thing goes on forever. But a small price to pay for such an awesome facility.

    GO GREEN!!!
