As the capital city of Michigan and next-door neighbor to one of the state’s major universities, Lansing attracts people from all across the region and benefits from a culturally diverse landscape. Downtown is a charming, historic district along the Grand River. The Michigan State Capitol overlooks a walkable collective of storefront shops, cafes, and bars, mainly situated along South Washington Square. Lush riverside parks like Hawk Island and Scott Woods give the locals scenic areas to picnic, exercise, or just hang out and enjoy the scenery.

Farther to the north and west, the cityscape transforms into a charming suburban environment, full of large houses, manicured lawns, and tree-shaded sidewalks. Michigan State University’s enormous campus borders Lansing to the east, and a hefty portion of the student population lives in Lansing; rentals here tend to be quite affordable, with apartments, condos, and houses available to fit any budget. Getting around town without a car is pretty easy too, with many residents opting to rely on mopeds and bicycles.
