Destination of the Week: Lansing-East Lansing, MI-Michigan State Capitol
Open note to the State of Michigan: PLEASE SPEND SOME MONEY AND MAKE YOUR ATTRACTION WEB SITES ATTRACTIVE AND ADDRESSES EASIER TO TYPE!
Yes, yet another depressing web site masks what could be a fun trip for many interested in history and state government. While one can tour the building using one of the many guides, if possible, try to arrange a tour to get the full experience. Fridays tend to be slower so some rooms and areas may be more accessible. The agency managing the building has proposed a US Capitol-like underground welcome center and hall to replace the current difficult-to-find entrance. Oh, unlike other capitol buildings, this one is closed on weekends! UGH!!!!
