What Bert Has To Say About Lansing-East Lansing Metro Area


Lansing is the state capital, and East Lansing is home to Michigan State University. Together the two places form the second most-populated area in Michigan, but individually, they are quite different. Downtown Lansing is plain and generally uninteresting; mainly anchored by the state government. A large GM assembly plant just west of town was recently replaced by a more modern plant farther out.
