Weekend Getaways – Plan a Lansing Staycation
When a person needs an escape from work and their everyday routine, the first idea that usually comes to mind is to take a great vacation somewhere. Unfortunately vacations can become expensive and stressful to plan, which can quickly ruin the entire relaxing weekend getaway. Instead of worrying about how to pay for a vacation far away from home, why not book one of the great hotels in your own backyard?
Lansing is home to incredible restaurants, art galleries, restaurants and festivals – taking a staycation here is a great option because the Lansing area has so much to offer. With plenty of bed and breakfasts, hotels, and inns to choose from you are certain to find a weekend retreat within your price range. Also, because you no longer have to budget your time and money for a long road-trip or expensive airfare, you have more cash and time to spend experiencing all of the activities Lansing and the surrounding areas have to offer.
Take a look at some of the great restaurants and hotels that would be perfect for your weekend staycation:
For a charming, historical experience, The English Inn is the perfect escape. If you are looking for lodging where you can park your car for the weekend and not have to leave, The English Inn -with its nature trails, swimming pool, restaurant and pub – is the best place for you.
If what you’re after on your staycation is an exciting weekend exploring the city, the Radisson Hotel Lansing at the Capitol is situated in the heart of Lansing’s entertainment, government, and business districts.
