Looking for something a little unique to do this summer? East Lansing offers a Summer Carillon Series on the MSU campus through August 3rd. What’s a Carillon Series? Keep reading!
The Muelder Summer Carillon Series began June 29th, and runs through August 3rd, with weekly Wednesday evening carillon concerts at Beaumont Tower on the beautiful Michigan State University campus. You can bring a blanket or chair and sit beneath this picturesque 104 foot tall MSU icon and listen to a concert of bells. Why not pack a picnic supper, situate yourself in the shadow of the tower, and then sit back and enjoy the music? After the performance, visitors are welcome to a tour of the bell tower. It’s a special treat that you don’t want to miss.
Whether by foot, by boat, or by wheel, if there’s one thing Michiganders love about summer, it’s getting outside and getting active! Just take a look at the many ways our Facebook and Twitter fans take advantage of our beautiful lakes, trails, and roads. Which one is your favorite?
Guest Blogger Jacqlyn Ucinski and her boyfriend weren’t just on a road trip to the Pictured Rocks Lakeshore, they were on a mission. Enjoy this story of a special road trip to Michigan’s Best Kept Secret.
I couldn’t believe it. There I was staring at a rock face dusted in vibrant colors from copper deposits with a waterfall careening down into serene turquoise waters. Is this real life? Heck, you could have told me I was in the Caribbean and I probably would have believed you. But I wasn’t in the Caribbean; I was looking at the Pictured Rocks in Munising, Michigan. A little town tucked away in the coves of the great Lake Superior. Their motto, Michigan’s best kept secret, waves proudly on the flags throughout their cozy town and all I can wonder is why did it take me this long to discover it?
