The Lansing area does not have many places to dive, but Lake Interstate on the southwest side of town off I-69 is where local divers go to get some easy time in the water. There is a variety of fish life and underwater plants to see. Visibility ranges between 10 and 20 feet. The lake is diveable from mid-March to mid-December. Inquire at ZZ Underwater World on Michigan Avenue in Lansing's east side. The phone number is 485-3894. They'll even do a Try Scuba course with non-divers at Lake Interstate for $25 (all gear and air included).
The capital of Michigan and home of the Spartans!
"Nice little suburban town..."
There isn't much else going on here outside of college life. Lansing is a medium sized city (about 180,000 people, I think). East Lansing is a suburb that houses the gigantic campus of Michigan State University. Most of the businesses and activities available are centered around college life.
"So it's a college town, so what?"
This place is very beautiful, with the scenic banks of the Red Cedar River and our glorious football stadium, you can't go wrong. Over 40,000 students call this place home coming from every state and over 125 countries. Grand River (the "Main St." of the area) has excellent specialty shopping, and lots of good food.
