Lansing – Things to do with your Team

Michigan’s capital and one of its most influential cities, Lansing has become the city it is today largely because of the automobile industry.  The city was the headquarters for the Olds Motor Vehicle Company, which manufactured Oldsmobiles in Lansing from 1897, all the way to 2004!

Lansing evolved into an industrial powerhouse which not only helped the city develop, but the state as well.  Thanks to Olds Motors, Lansing has grown to become a vibrant city, housing seven accredited colleges and is the epicenter of culture, education, and government for the metropolitan area.
