10 Lansing Staycation Spring Break Ideas
Spring break is coming up in two weeks for a lot of school districts in the area. If you're like me, money is tight. I plan on making it a fun, Lansing themed, spring break staycation.
Last year our family took a trip to Washington D.C. We thought the temps would be warmer in D.C., we were mistaken. We had a nice time on the trip and visited a lot of historical landmarks. It was freaking cold and we didn't consider the fact that other folks were going to D.C. for spring break too. It was jam packed but well worth the trip and the memories we created. One thing my son wanted to do was play catch with a football on the lawn in front of the Washington Monument, we did. It was surreal to be in D.C. and see all of the history.
Lansing has plenty to offer when it comes to things to do. I am guilty of saying, "what is there to do in Lansing...ugh". I want to make spring break awesome this year and you can do the same, for cheap.
The weather forecast two weeks from today is calling for partly sunny skies and hi's around 50. The forecast isn't too shabby so that means you can get outside and enjoy some of what Lansing has to offer.
