I hear people say all the time that there’s nothing to do in Lansing. I say you're wrong! There is a ton to do in Lansing.

I have lived here my entire life except when I attended CMU in Mt. Pleasant from 1977-82. Our City of Lansing has come a long way when it comes to fun things to do. I will give you a laundry list of things to do. So, sit back, relax and take notes on what you and your family can do to have fun.

First of all, take in a Lugnut game down at Jackson National Park downtown. Lugnut games are great family fun with many things to do at the ballpark. They have fireworks a few nights out of the month too.

You can also take advantage of all the water we have around. My wife and I went kayaking at Crego Park and had a great time too. If you like to fish, there are multiple lakes, ponds, rivers, and creeks to fish at. Fishing licenses are $26 dollars and you can get them all over the place.
Swimming is another great thing to do. Go to lakes, ponds, and pools but all are a fun time.
Then you can go basic and just go for a nice scenic walk or bike ride. Or you can get creative and call the City of Lansing and organize a cleanup crew to help combat the litter problem our city has.
I’m going to have a Mad Dog cleanup in August. The date isn’t set yet, but it’s going to happen.
This is a solid outline of great things to do in our great city of Lansing. There is plenty to do in Lansing this summer. Have fun and let me know how it goes. Also, if you want to be involved in my Mad Dog cleanup in August, please let me know.
