Lansing, like many cities is separated into several sections; Northwest, South, West and East are usually how people go about dividing it. Within each of those sections are all kinds of neighborhoods and attractions, all of which differ from one another quite a bit. The neighborhoods are all very unique and offer very different pieces of the overall culture that is Lansing, according to Chris Tarpoff of the Lansing visitor’s bureau. Old Town is known for its variety of restaurants and art galleries while the downtown area is known for its tall buildings and local shops. Each area offers a specific niche allowing people to truly experience the lifestyles of the city and its residents.
