Things to do in Lansing, Michigan

 

Slingerland CDJR is happy to be centrally located compared to several remarkable Michigan cities. We’re just 45 minutes outside of Lansing, so it’s close enough that we get plenty of chances to enjoy some of the great things to do in Lansing, Michigan. Whether you’re a local resident or just passing by, be sure to stop at one of these fun attractions soon.

Potter Park Zoo

This charming zoo features over 100 species of animals, including red pandas, bald eagles, a reptile house, and even Siberian tigers. It’s small enough to be walkable and enjoyable for families with young children, but big enough to keep you occupied for a casual day-long visit.

R.E. Olds Transportation Museum

As car buffs ourselves, it probably comes as no surprise that this automotive museum is one of our favorite spots in Lansing. You’ll find everything from old REO vehicles out of Lansing to bicycles to trucks. You’ll get plenty of background information on the history of automotives here while you check out a beautiful collection of antique machines.

River Trail

If you’ve been traveling and need a chance to stretch your legs, the Lansing River Trail is a lovely place to do it. This 13-mile paved trail runs through Crego Park and along the Red Cedar River and offers up plenty of beautiful scenery along the way. It’s a great resource for locals to exercise and explore the city, and a great place for tourists to stop and do some exploring themselves.
