Lansing is popularly known as the Heart of Michigan, particularly heartwarming since it's the state capital. As a destination, Lansing stands out for its numerous quaint surroundings, alfresco dining, and lots of entertaining things to do.

Families with kids should check out the Impression 5 Science Center and Michigan Historical Museum. These spots will give your kids both fun and education, as they learn about science and history, respectively.

If you're travelling with a creative group, the recommended spots to visit are the art galleries in the area; these include the Absolute Gallery, Art Path, and Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University.

When you're done sightseeing and are ready to wind down, plan to get some drinks downtown. Lansing's Makers and Shakers Adult Beverage Trail guides you to some of the city's top spots to taste so much more than the local beers. But since that activity is off-limits to kids, families might prefer restaurants like 517 BBQ, American Bistro, and Arcadia Smokehouse.

Lansing is well-connected by plane, train, and coach routes. The nearest airport, Capital Region International Airport, is only a few miles from the city centre. Amtrak's Blue Water line stops in Lansing on its way from Chicago to Port Huron. And coach companies including Greyhound, Indian Trails, and Jefferson Lines offer over a hundred routes in and out of Lansing, making your travels a snap.
