This is a guest post provided by Derksen Dentistry in Lansing, Michigan.

In case some of you travelers have been out of the loop of popular tourist sites, Michigan has become one of the top choices for destinations in the United States. The state has been enjoying a resurgence in tourism as a result of some highly publicized tourist attractions around the state, and Lansing is one of the towns with a lot to offer.

While Detroit, Grand Rapids and Traverse City tend to steal much of the spotlight, Lansing wraps many of these locations’ amenities into a convenient package. Travel to Lansing is fast and easy from nearly any point in the U.S. with a local airport connecting daily flights to hubs like Detroit and Minneapolis. Once you’ve arrived, it’s good to have an itinerary to maximize your experience in Michigan’s state capitol. 

What to Do in Lansing, Michigan
The first thing to do when you arrive in Lansing is to enjoy your stay at a Lansing accommodation. You have a choice of 15 hotels and several motels within Lansing Proper, and that number expands if you count neighboring East Lansing, the home of Michigan State University. If you want to enjoy downtown Lansing, the Radisson is most centrally located, while the new Hyatt Place is also a popular destination for travelers with its proximity to the Eastwood Towne Center, a popular shopping center.

If you prefer, stay at a B&B located just outside the city, there are a number of options available. The nice surprise is that Lansing accommodations are very reasonably priced. When you are ready to enjoy Lansing to its fullest, you’ll find hundreds of things to do like festivals, sports, the arts and entertainment, educational and cultural attractions and much more.

There’s plenty of shopping in Lansing, and an abundance of live music at venues large and small (check out the Loft or see what shows are taking place at the Wharton Center in East Lansing), music festivals and concerts, golfing, sports events and an extreme sports center for the athletes who need a real challenge.

Hunger is never a problem for tourists in Lansing. With over 400 restaurants, it isn’t hard to find one that suits the occasion for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
