Start Close to Home for Pure Michigan Experience

The best way to experience Pure Michigan is to start close to home. The Old Town Commercial Association and the Greater Lansing Convention and Visitor’s Bureau both have events coming up that make it fun, easy and affordable to enjoy this area’s greatest attractions. If you have company coming to visit any time this year, why not get ready to show them a great time by previewing with Taste and Tour of Old Town on April 13th and Be A Tourist in Your Own Town on June 1st.  You will come away with some fabulous ideas for continuing to enjoy your own town close-to-home throughout the year, have some great ideas for things to do when guests visit, and help two great organizations fulfill their mission.

Taste and Tour of Old Town

Participants check in for the event at the OTCA office where they will receive a map, purchase tickets, and wristbands to be on the tour. Tickets are priced $13 in advance, $15 the day of, and $5 for children ages 6-12, and free for children 5 and under. Tickets will also be sold for loft tours only for $5. The Taste & Tour of Old Town is a fundraiser for the OTCA, which helps to continue its mission of revitalizing Lansing’s Old Town district. Tickets can be purchased at the OTCA office, 1232 Turner St. Lansing, MI 48906 or in advance on their website (link above).

 Be A Tourist In Your Own Town

Here is How it works: For only $1 you can purchase a "Be A Tourist Passport" which grants you FREE admission to more than 60 area attractions, local businesses and special activities on June 1, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

You can reach most of the participating attractions by jumping on one of four designated CATA bus routes! There are maps to help you make your way around to many of the attractions from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., during the Be A Tourist in Your Own Town event. Blue, Red, Yellow, and Green Route buses run approximately every 20 minutes. Children 42" tall or less ride for free.
