When it comes to visiting the Midwestern United States, one should not miss Lansing, the capitol of Michigan: From history and culture to beautiful, green spaces and charming town districts to the famous Michigan State University, it transports both the city's metropolitan and small town charm.
Located close to Michigan’s world famous Great Lakes, Lansing itself is surrounded by the Grand River, the largest river in Michigan, and the Red Cedar River, which both impress with a blooming nature inhabiting flora and fauna.
In the past couple of years home-made beer breweries rose, creating a diversity of different tastes. But Lansing is also home to several original American distilleries offering samplings and tours.
Lansing is home to the Michigan State University (MSU), one of Americas’ Top Ten universities. It provides the backdrop for world cultures to converge. Currently over 8,000 International students are enrolled at MSU – 6,000 of which are Chinese. The campus inhabits all faculties and builds an own area in the middle of Lansing, crossed by the Red Cedar River. Football, marching bands and lots of others sports are passionately lived throughout the year – all accompanied by the MSU’s own mascot: a Spartan, that is proudly displayed throughout the whole city.
The city's economy is really diversified among government service, healthcare, manufacturing, insurance, banking, and education. Plus, in 2015 the company General Motors Lansing Grand River Plant began producing Chevrolet Camaros, the first Camaros built in the U.S. since 1992!
