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.
Held on Saturday, June 1, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., this day allows event participants to visit over 90 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!
Participants can purchase a "passport" for $1.00 at various locations throughout the community throughout the month of May, allowing the participants entry to all the participating attractions throughout the region FREE on the day of the event.
The Capital Area Transportation Authority partners with the GLCVB to provide five transportation routes with dedicated stops and multiple busses on each route to get to the majority of attractions. Just pay fifty (50) cents when you board the bus and receive a transfer that will allow patrons to freely get on and off the busses until the end of the event. While CATA lines service the majority of the attractions, there are a few that are not on a bus route, and patrons may need to drive to get there.
