Michigan State University

MSU's huge country-like campus offers a lovely setting for running, biking or just hanging out, and also has places to visit, like the Beal Botanical Gardens, Sanford Natural Area, the 70,000-capacity Spartan football stadium, an art center, planetarium and, of course, the MSU Dairy Store for ice cream.

Anytime I have friends and loved ones from out of state, they want to see the updates at Michigan State University. The campus is designed with the walking student to classes in mind. Don't forget to tour the farms attached too. Even check out the Student Union is a must.

I love History, and I am trying to work my way through the state checking off all the major venues from the bucket list. This museum had plenty of parking, a friendly staff, and was reasonably priced. If you have the SSS "park pass", the cost is cheaper. Price I do not recall, but I wanna say it was $4 versus $6. We went on a Saturday, so we did not have to pay to park. I guess on Sunday you can get in free we were told.

The museum is two levels and it's very well laid out with good displays and a variety of information. There is a snack shop on the first floor, but it did not appear to be open weekends. There was a vending machine however. We opted to do the first level, then drive down a few blocks and eat, then come back.

It did not take us long to get through the museum, even reading a lot of the displays as a couple with no children in tow. However, it is an affordable way to spend an afternoon learning something new.

Burchfield Park

Reviewed By hollywoodpalms1113 - Holt, Michigan

I used to come here as a kid in the 70's and it was the place to be. It would be packed. Now that kids go more to Lake Lansing and Hawke Island, Burchfield seems to be forgotten. But if you don't like the crowds, this is the place to go. Clean, quiet, no crowds at all, pavilions, play ground and bring a picnic. Water is very clean too.

Michigan State Capitol

Designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1992, this building has served as Michigan's seat of state government since its completion in 1879.

Reviewed By Erie Deneal J - Davenport, United States

This is one of the better marketed Capitols we have visited. We toured the building with a 3rd grade class and found it educational and entertaining. We appreciated learning more about the Capitol. It was great to learn that one of Michigan's favorite governors, Austin Blair, was an abolitionist.

Maple Street Mall

Reviewed By Perbaskitpeaink - Lansing, MI

I love this place! This is a very large building that hosts 55 + vendors each with their own unique booth space. You will find everything from antiques, collectibles, hand-crafted items, large furniture, jewelry, etc. You can spend hours upon hours going through every nook and cranny there is so much to see. The prices are dependent upon each individual vendor's booth, but most are very modestly and reasonably prices...especially compared with some of the other antique/junk/collectible shops that you'll find in downtown Mason. This building sits right on the corner of the main square and is easily accessible and a very cute building. They also have sidewalk sales and other special events throughout the year. This is a must to go explore!

Spartan Stadium

Reviewed By Stategt - Traverse City, Michigan

Renovations keep making this venue better and better.
It's easy to get around inside. There are many food choices.
I love our West Upper Deck seats. Lines of vision are great.
There are multiple large bathrooms and several concession stands with a few free standing food options. Take the ramp instead of the stairs, though. It's a long way up.

I visited the R.E. Olds Transportation Museum in October 2017 during a visit to Lansing. The museum staff were very helpful in answering questions about the museum and the museum has a variety of cars to look at from all different decades of the 20th...MoreThanks so much for visiting and for the review!
