About Lansing

The state capitol of Michigan, Lansing is located along the Grand River, in the center of the state. Its residents enjoy the best of both worlds, as it combines the feel of a small town with the excitement and fun of a big city. From art and sports to education and recreation, Lansing has it all!

Lansing places a strong emphasis on education, and the Lansing area is home to a variety of institutions of higher learning, including veterinary, nursing, law, and medical schools. Michigan State University is located in East Lansing, and Western Michigan University is based in nearby Kalamazoo. Public, private, and charter schools, a network of libraries, and several museums provide educational opportunities for people of all ages.

The Lansing Center is a downtown convention center providing ample space for events of all sizes, and numerous parks, shopping centers, and art galleries give residents many ways to pass the time. The Lansing City Market is one of the oldest continuously operating farmers markets in America, and Potter Park Zoo is the oldest public zoo in Michigan. Sports fans can attend professional baseball, basketball, or soccer games, or cheer for the athletes of the Michigan State Spartans.

The community offers several ways for its residents to get involved, including clubs, organizations, crime watch groups, neighborhood associations and local government. With housing that is close to highways yet still immersed in Michigan’s natural beauty, it is no wonder that Lansing is a wonderful place to call home. Looking for homes for sale in Lansing?
