Be A Tourist In Your Own Town

Saturday, June 1, 2019
10:00 am - 5:00 pm

While a dollar sure doesn’t buy much these days, it’s still enough to participate in the Lansing area’s favorite annual event – Be A Tourist In Your Own Town. This day allows event participants to visit over 80 local attractions and one-day only special tours that include: Impression 5 Science Center, Potter Park Zoo, the State Capitol Building, the Michigan Historical Museum and so much more! Join us next year to experience a great day of fun!

“Be a Tourist in Your Own Town” was created by the Greater Lansing Convention & Visitors Bureau to showcase Greater Lansing’s attractions, special events and tourism suppliers to our local residents. Participants can purchase a “passport” for $1.00 at various locations throughout the community throughout the month of May. This passport allows the participants into all of the participating attractions throughout the region for free on the day of the event. An estimated 15,000 residents and visitors come out to enjoy the day. Certain attractions are stamp locations where the back of the passports can be stamped. Participants can continue to have their passports stamped at those locations throughout the month of June, but can only get into the attractions (free) with the passport the day of the event only. They must pay full admission price for the remainder of the month. The participants can then mail in the completed stamp page to be eligible for numerous prizes.
