East Lansing is a city in the U.S. Change things up with these side-trips from East Lansing: Falling Waters Trail (in Jackson) and Rusty Wallace Racing Experience (in Brooklyn). There's much more to do: deepen your understanding at Michigan State University, get a sense of history and politics at Michigan State Capitol, engage your brain at Impression 5 Science Center, and look for gifts at Horrocks Farm Market.

To see reviews, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the East Lansing holiday builder app.

The Motor City

Founded in 1701 by a French explorer and adventurer, Detroit exerted a profound impact on the world for most of the 20th century.
Venture out of the city with trips to Ann Arbor (Kerrytown & University of Michigan). There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at Detroit Institute of Arts, head off the coast to Belle Isle Park, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Detroit Zoo, and take a leisurely stroll along Detroit RiverFront.

To see reviews, maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Detroit attractions planner.

You can drive from East Lansing to Detroit in 1.5 hours. In September, daytime highs in Detroit are 75°F, while nighttime lows are 58°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Sat) so you can travel back home.
