If you're looking for a lively downtown feel, you have found it. Downtown Lansing is the place to be and has everything from dining, shopping and entertainment. So many great events happen in the Downtown Lansing area including: Be A Tourist in Your Own Town, Easter Egg Hunt on Capital Lawn, The Capital City Film Festival, Crosstown Showdown (starts off baseball season for the Lugnuts), Beerfest at the Ballpark, Adopt a River, The Mayors River Walk, Taste of Downtown, The Farmer's Market at the Capital, Trick or Treat on the Square, Sliver Bells in The City, Frost Fest, and so much more.
In the summer, there are free concerts in Reutter Park at lunchtime across from the downtown library. Enjoy a relaxing hour of live music mixed into the normal work week. From Impressions 5 Science Center to the R.E. Old Transportation Museum all the way to the Lansing City Market, there is something to offer everyone. Lansing is just a great place in Michigan!
