Vacation rentals in East Lansing

Experience East Lansing with a vacation rental

Located to the east of Michigan’s capital city Lansing, the classic college town of East Lansing exudes laidback suburban vibes. The star attraction is undoubtedly the Michigan State University campus which is open to visitors. Tree-lined streets, brick homes, designated biking lanes, and an eclectic downtown make East Lansing a fantastic base to explore the region. Vacation rentals cater to all tastes and budgets and families, friends and independent travelers will feel right at home here.

Tasteful vacation properties for everyone

Vacation rentals in Downtown East Lansing are a good idea as the town’s main attractions are in easy reach. It is especially perfect for those planning to party until the wee hours - Grand River Avenue is where most of the action is at. Another possible option is to book a rental in Old Town Lansing where architectural gems and old world-charm abound. Both cities are well-connected to each other by public transport. A bit further south, the Old Everett Neighborhood has well-equipped vacation houses that can be booked on Holidu.

Vacations in East Lansing

The historic Michigan State University

Eat, drink and make merry!

Steeped in tradition, MSU is no ordinary campus – this one is a world in itself. While here, look out for MSU’s beloved mascot, the bronze-cast Spartan Statue. It is one of the most photographed spots on campus along with the Red Cedar River. MSU also hosts an art center, a planetarium, the gigantic Spartan Football Stadium with a 70,000+ capacity, and miles of running and biking trails. Hungry? Try the banana chocolate chunk or the blueberry pie ice creams at the MSU Dairy Store. They serve sandwiches and snacks too. The campus is huge so mopeds and skateboards are a good idea if you’re serious about exploring it.

Eat, drink and party till the wee hours

The entire downtown area is energized by its profusion of art cafés, live music bars, bookshops, and art galleries. For food, the options are limitless: there’s Mexican, Indian, Middle Eastern, and Japanese among a slew of world cuisines to choose from. The Ellison Brewery + Spirits regales pub-crawlers with its boisterous, industrial vibes, and a top selection of rye whiskies, fruity ales, lagers, and stouts. Dublin Square Irish Pub & Restaurant meanwhile is a slice of Ireland in Michigan. Their lobster bisque is legendary as its photogenic hand-carved mahogany bar. End the night with a high-energy dance session at Harper's Restaurant & Brew Pub – this one’s a hit with university students for its cheap food and drinks.

Travelers and activities

An art attack in East Lansing

Architecture enthusiasts, in particular should check out the startling geometry at the MSU Broad Museum. Designed by the award-winning architect Zaha Hadid, the museum holds over 10,000 permanent exhibits and strives to showcase underrepresented communities. Science and culture meet at the MSU Museum established in 1857. Artifacts here span across folk art, natural science, and even anthropology from the world over. The curiously named (SCENE) Metrospace in Downtown East Lansing is a non-traditional performing space that hosts poetry readings, talks, and musical performances apart from its impressive roster of art exhibitions.

Festivities and community events galore

Free community events are a fixture in this spirited college town. The Summer Solstice Jazz Festival is a 2-day outdoor event that celebrates jazz in all its forms. Summer also features the East Lansing Art Festival, a 58-year-old tradition that fosters a love for community and tradition in the Greater Lansing region. The East Lansing Film Festival is Michigan's oldest non-experimental film festival – the lineup includes comedies, documentaries, and cutting-edge world cinema. October ushers in Halloween’s Great Pumpkin Walk, and the year closes with Winter Glow - a celebration of fairy lighting, holiday markets, ice carving, horse carriage rides, and even marshmallow roasting.

Top 5 travel tips for East Lansing

1. Recharge at W.J. Beal Botanical Garden

An oasis of sorts, these botanical gardens were established in 1873, and are set right beside the Red Cedar River. An excess of 5000 plant species makes this 19th-century educational garden an exciting prospect for nature lovers.

2. Stargaze at the Talbert and Leota Abrams Planetarium

A hidden gem on the MSU campus, the planetarium is a must if astronomy and outer space exploration are your thing. The Sky Theater's projection dome and extraordinary acoustics transports visitors to distant worlds. Outdoor observations with telescopes are a hit with kids – note that these are subject to sky conditions though.

3. Explore the scenic Lansing River Trail

This multiple-use trail hugs the banks of the picturesque Red Cedar and Grand Rivers allowing visitors a plethora of recreational activities: jogging, biking, rollerblading, kayaking, and more. The trail weaves past Old Town Lansing and even connects with MSU’s iconic campus. Birding walks will fetch you close encounters with bald eagles, red-winged blackbirds, and other exotic species. For a leisurely paddle, try Crego Park.

4. A day trip to Lansing for big city delights

Michigan’s capital city has much to offer from the docent-led tours at the beautifully-restored Michigan State Capital Building to the Michigan State Museum. There are stunning exhibits on Michigan’s first people - the Anishinaabe. Old Town Lansing meanwhile is a culture traveler’s delight with its Victorian buildings, winsome boutiques, specialty shops, and family-run eateries.

5. Performing arts at the Wharton Center

A jewel of East Lansing, the Wharton Center for Performing Arts at Michigan State University has hosted the likes of Bob Dylan and impresses with its layout and state-of-the-art acoustics. World-class dance companies, Broadway shows, and symphonies have graced the Wharton over time
