As the capital of Michigan, Lansing is a hubbub of cultural events and diversity. Often referred to as "Mid-Michigan," this city is located in the middle of Michigan's mitt and is a mere 45-minute drive from Slingerland Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat. It is this combination of location, diversity, and culture that makes Lansing a wonderful location for our dealership to serve.


Lansing has a rich history that began in 1835 when two brothers from Lansing, New York made their way West. After settling in what they called Biddle Town, the brothers returned to New York and sold plots of land to unsuspecting people. When these people made it to the Michigan area, they found Biddle Town submerged under several feet of water, but they were determined to stay. They settled in the area and christened the town Lansing Township after their home in New York.


Despite the rocky start these residents had in the area, Lansing flourished over the years, especially after it was named the state's capital in 1847 due to its central location. Now, the city is rich with a number of museums, theaters, and other fun attractions that are appealing to visitors and residents alike.


For instance, those looking for a family-friendly day out can head over to Potter Park Zoo. This zoo is located along the banks of the Red Cedar River and is home to more than 500 animals. The Lansing CityMarket is also a wonderful locale. Known as Mid-Michigan's oldest public market, it has a variety of vendors that sell endless amounts of goods, ranging from kayak and canoe rentals to freshly baked goods, organic meat, and a full-service bar. It even has live music throughout the year.


Finally, museum enthusiasts will find plenty of education experiences at one of the area's small, specialized museums. If you are interested in science, then the Impression5 Science Center is the place to visit; those interested in learning more about Lansing should check out the Turner-DodgeHouse Museum.


In Lansing, the opportunities for fun are endless. If you need the perfect vehicle to head out on the open road to give this great city a visit, then don't hesitate to stop in to Slingerland Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat.
