A perfect weekend day trip in Lansing, MI

You don’t always need to go far to have a great adventure.


I live just outside of Lansing, Michigan.  Many days my kids complain that there is “nothing to do.” However, there are many cool things to do, if you just look for them!

Recently, my family took a day trip kayaking along the Grand River with River Town Adventures 

The weather was perfect, not too hot and not too cold.  We drove to the Lansing City Market  to purchase tickets, then took a shuttle that dropped us off near Potter Park Zoo.  

Paddling at a decent pace back to the City Market took us about 1 1/2 hours, which was just the right amount of time.  We had enough time to enjoy it and relax, but not too much where we were anxious to stop.  It’s a nice combination of winding waterways, nature, and downtown buildings.    

To top it off,  the trip ends right at the steps of the Water Front Bar & Grill.  The outdoor seating along the river was an ideal spot for a delicious Cuban sandwich and drinks.

A perfect day in my book.
