To pack or not to pack, that is the question

by Wezzyuk

I am travelling to Michaigan State University on 19/05/06. Can anyone advise me as to what i should pack, given that the weather looks hot and humid?

I would also like a little bit of information about things to do at Lake Michigan and "The Maritime Centre"!

The clock is ticking, Help!!!

It's hard to know what the weather will be like in two weeks, but I would guess that the temperatures will be fairly warm during the day, though you should also be prepared for some cooler temperatures at evening. Lansing/East Lansing are inland, will you be spending any time at the lakeshore? At this time of the year, it's often much cooler by Lake Michigan or Lake Huron, and it can be foggy in the evening as well. Be sure to bring an umbrella - there could be heavy thunderstorms with major downpours at this time of year!

Thankyou for you reply. I have just received my itinerary and it appears that we are also visiting Capitol Building and the museum and even going to a Lansing Lug nuts baseball game.

Any bits of info would be much appreciated.

Travel Tips for Lansing

Visit the Chinese Family...

Visit the Chinese Family Buffet on Grand River and Hagadorn...For a look a the different aspects of the people, just go to Starbucks and then take a trip just next door to the Cafe Latte...It's the clash of two worlds... Everything is only on one street.

A Capitol City with a Small Town Feel


I lived in Lansing for 9 years, but I felt like a visitor most of the time. I worked over an hour away and I spent very little time there. Lansing has a "small town" feel. It's amazing how small. I was at a park to watch fireworks one year and found out that the Governor had been right behind me. I had no idea until someone told me later! People living in Lansing are primarily employed by the State government in some way or work for some organization who has its headquarters located close to the legislature. There's also Michigan State University located in East Lansing and only 5 minutes away or Cooley Law School located right downtown Lansing. When I moved they were really close to opening the new automotive plant just outside of Lansing. They've been building it for a couple of years. That is expected to have a wave of job stimulus to the area. The great thing about Lansing is that it's close to everywhere. Lansing is situated between I-96, I-69 and US-127. It's almost in the center of the state, so it's about an hour, maybe an hour and a half in any direction (except up North of course). It's about 3 hours to Mackinaw Bridge from Lansing taking 127 up to meet 75.

"Be a Visitor in Your Own Town"

Once a year, Lansing has an event called "Be a Visitor In Your Own Town". It's an excellent idea and a great bargain. A specific date is chosen, usually the first Saturday in June. At select locations around town they sell a "Passport" for $1. Once you buy the Passport, you can go to all the facilities listed in the Passport for free. 1 Passport per person, adult or child. This usually includes the Potter Park Zoo, all the museums in town, and 1 year it included sailboat rides across Lake Lansing just north of town. The Capitol Building is usually only open Monday through Friday, but they open it special for this event and run guided tours to see the Governor's office and both chambers of the legislature. Busses run free all day so you don't have to worry about parking or figuring out where to turn.


Check out the events going on around town. There's usually a Chili Cook Out, 5K races, soccer tournaments, rallies, parades. In July General Motors holds a week long concert called Common Ground. They have well known performers come in and perform in the park. You can buy tickets for a particular act or for the entire week. Lansing has Hope Soccer Complex, holding 6 full size soccer fields which are completely packed every weekend. There are many kids and adult soccer leagues that share the fields. No dogs and no bottles. About 45 minutes north of Lansing is a wildlife refuge area along 127.

Michigan's Capitol

by yooperprof

"The Peculiarly Thin Dome of Lansing"

Maybe I'm just being squirrely, but to me it looks like a "St. Paul's dome" that has been on an Atkins diet. The dome doesn't really seem to be in proportion with the building at its base. I prefer the Wisconsin State Capitol - which you can see on my Madison page.

"A bit about our Capitol"

Michigan's present State Capitol building was first dedicated in 1879 at the inaugural ceremony of Governor Charles M. Croswell. This classically styled structure, designed by Elijah E. Meyers, has a 267-foot spired dome. It represents over six years of planning and construction. Michigan's resources are exhibited in the copper, slate and white pine used throughout the structure. Built to house the governor's office, the legislature, supreme court and other state functions, the building has been substanially renovated over the years to meet changing needs.

Other State Capitols on my VT pages:

Madison WI (my favorite)
Montgomery AL
Harrisburg PA
Columbus OH (not a dome)
