We went out on a great Nov Saturday afternon walked around town and around the fish ladder. Lots of people enjoying the old area fishing, walking and visiting the nice shops. We enjoyed the art galleries and shops and the river views. Enjoy

It is a nice place to walk and visit some unique shops, great to take the pulse of the city and to get some taste of the city. It is also hosting some events.

Its easy to miss this area if your in Lansing, or downtown or on the river, unless you follow it north, or you go to an event here. Looks nice, but I think usually not much culture, and a lot of the businesses seem to carry similar stuff.

My husband and I enjoyed some of the best Blues music in Michigan that we have ever heard. Old Town Lansing is so charming. We loved all of the little shops Meat restaurant, the new little coffe shop. We do plan to visit again.

We walked the Old Town area and were very impressed. We especially liked the general store. It's nice that they host different events. I hear many of the restaurants are very good too.

New places opening up, and some unique shops to visit. While there is certainly room for improvement--maybe a couple more up and coming restaurants--this area provides a kind of cool connection to the city. Visit--its a couple streets of focus--nice change of pace.

We were going to go but the entry fee was $22.00 per person so we decided to stay at a bar called Zoobies where the pizza was very good.

The area is surrounded by run down homes making it an unpleasant entry with you car doors LOCKED. You do not feel safe there.
