Review of Lansing, Michigan

Lansing is Catching
Star Rating - 4/7/2011
I am really surprised about all the negative comments about Lansing. I have lived in the Lansing area for 16 years and in the city limits for four. A few years ago downtown was dead after 5pm, but it is really starting to turn around. There are a lot of bars, but quite a few new restaurants as well. The river trail is one of those hidden beauties and connects from north of Old Town to Hawk Island. With the remodel of the old Ottawa Power Station and the new City Market and other construction Lansing is finally starting to take it's riverfront seriously. The city has had a lot to work through with all the GM problems, but I for one really see a lot happening. A city is really what you make it, and if you live here and complain and don't get involved then that's the mentality others will see.
