Thanks in part to the 47,000 Michigan State University students who live and play here, visitors to our East Lansing hotels have a lot of entertainment choices. First, get energized for an exciting day by enjoying East Lansing’s diverse food scene, which has every cuisine you can think of, including Thai, Indian, Middle Eastern, Japanese and even Ethiopian.
Like any college town, East Lansing has plenty of sports bars with lots of big screens where you can enjoy a game along with a burger, fries and a Michigan craft beer. Crunchy’s and The Riv are two of the more popular local watering holes.
Hardcore college sports fans staying in our East Lansing accommodations should definitely make it to Reno’s East Sports Bar. This local institution is the host of the weekly radio shows for MSU’s football, hockey, and men’s and women’s basketball teams. Plus, there’s always some kind of game being televised so you can cheer for your own favorites.
As a town that grew up around one the country’s premiere institutions of higher learning, the cultural roots run deep in East Lansing. Hotel guests will enjoy browsing Saper Galleries and the Mackerel Sky Gallery of Contemporary Craft.
