We wanted to draw attention to this annual event in Lansing as it is something every city in Michigan should consider emulating. It is just too easy to grow into the mind set that where you reside there is absolutely nothing to do or that you have already seen it, done it, surfed it. We wager to bet that there are plenty of area attractions right under your that offer new experiences or old ones that need to be rediscovered. This kind of local exploration is a great way to reconnect with your community, save a few dollars while at the same time pouring a few back into your community’s economy which in turn keeps your area of the Mitten prosperous and interesting to visit.
So we present to you:
Be A Tourist In Your Own Town brought to you by the fine folks at the Greater Lansing Convention and Visitors Bureau. Consider organizing one in your area!
About Be A Tourist In Your Own Town
Fifteen years ago, the Greater Lansing Convention and Visitors Bureau created this event to increase community awareness of it’s attractions and the tourism industry’s impact on the area. So once again the doors are open for you to explore culture and creativity in mid-Michigan.
As Lansing celebrates its 150th anniversary, take this opportunity to enjoy attractions that highlight both Lansing’s unique history as well as its innovative and progressive future. This year they have included old favorites such as Impression 5 Science Center, Potter Park Zoo and the Michigan Historical Museum, and added new hot spots like the FRAG Center, MSU’s Breslin Center, WKAR Studios and taste the new â€œCapital City Sundaeâ€ ice cream flavor at the MSU Dairy Store.
