About Lansing, MI


In the middle of the mitten lies Lansing, the state capital of Michigan. As the home of an enormous automobile manufacturing industry, including General Motors, this city’s geography at first appears purely postindustrial. However, traveling about the city reveals beautiful natural nooks that surround the Grand River, which flows throughout the entire city. In addition to offering ample wooded areas and wildlife, Lansing hosts attractions including an acclaimed symphony, a teeming zoo, and one of the largest genealogy collections in the U.S.
