Old Town Lansing
The quaint hub of downtown Lansing, East Grand River between Larch and Washington, as well as many of the streets off of Grand River, are lined with art galleries, boutique shops and cozy cafes.  Live music and poetry readings can be heard in many of the local businesses on the evenings and weekends.  Spring, summer, and fall bring street festivals, while the first Sunday of every month is the First Sunday Gallery Walk. While you’re there, take a self-walking tour to learn more about the historical aspects of the area.
