Michigan experiences warm summers with long days, and cold winters with ice and snow. Naturally, as a consequence, the optimal time to visit depends on your personal weather predilections, though both spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) are visually stunning seasons to experience. Just make the best of the weather, and take it as it comes! In terms of public holidays, Michigan observes the same as the rest of the USA with Independence Day (July 4th) and Thanksgiving (end of November) being of special national importance. Bear in mind that prices during these times will rise so if you are looking for a bargain, they might be best avoided.
It comes as a surprise to many to discover that the capital of the US State of Michigan is not Detroit, but the noticeably smaller, much more laid back and far more fiscally responsible city of Lansing. Located in central Michigan, Lansing became the State Capital in 1848 in response to the British capture of former capital Detroit during the War of 1812. An aesthetically pleasant city, Lansing is home to Michigan State University, one of the “big ten” schools, and also one of the most distinguished public universities in the United States, as well as one of its largest. In a manner befitting that of a state capital, Lansing also boasts a host of museums and historical buildings such as the Michigan Historic Centre and Library, the Science Centre, a Museum of Women’s History and the Michigan State Capital Building. Lansing is also a pleasingly green city, with several parks and public gardens, as well as more than 100 community garden projects and urban farms. The Historic Lansing City Market is also well worth a visit, especially during the summer months. With plenty of organically farmed produce, handmade clothing and artisan furniture, visitors here are certain to find plenty to catch the eye. There are restaurants to please every palette in this city, and the large Korean community means that you’ll be sure to find some great restaurants serving authentic Korean cuisine.
CATA also operate several bus services across Lansing and taxis are relatively easy to flag down. If you enjoy walking there is a river walk trail along the Grand River and Red Cedar River and the city boasts a large number of bike lanes should you prefer a two-wheeled approach to transportation. If you want to go further afield, there are many frequent connections to Chicago and Detroit.
Visitors arriving at Lansing Capital City Airport (LAN) can take the bus service operated by Capital Area Transportation Authority (CATA) between the airport and the city centre. Running seven days a week, from early morning till evening on weekdays and 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on weekends, the bus service is a cheap and popular way to get to the centre. There are also several car hire companies operating out of Lansing airport, should you prefer to make your own way around, and of course, there are always plenty of taxis waiting at the taxi rank.
