MI-BOX Moving Guide to Lansing, Illinois
Moving to Lansing, Illinois
Not to be confused with the capital of Michigan, Lansing, IL is a much smaller, much quainter village. Located just south of Chicago, the Village of Lansing is an Illinois suburb nestled right on the border of Indiana. To the west, Lansing is bordered by Glenwood and Thornton, Calumet City and South Holland are to the north, Lynwood to the south, and Munster and Hammond in Indiana border Lansing on the east.
Lansing’s motto is “a community of pride, progress, and possibilities,” which reflects the wonderful attitude of the people who live and work here. Though it may be small, it’s an ardent community of people who work hard to enjoy the finer things in life.
The Weather in Lansing
Living in Lansing, you’ll get used to very cold and snowy winters and very pleasant summers. During winter months, temperatures can get well below freezing. In the summer, temperatures can soar into the 100s, but those days of high heat are rare. Though there are several Chicagoland suburbs between Lansing and Lake Michigan, it still partially benefits from the tempering lake effect on its weather.
Speaking of lake effect—get ready for a phenomenon in winter called “lake effect snow.” Lansing, IL residents can expect an extra dose of snow every season due to precipitation off of Lake Michigan. Keep your shovel or snowblower ready!
Dining and Entertainment in Lansing
Looking for the hotspots for food and drink in Lansing? There’s a smattering of local restaurants to choose from if you’re looking to eat closer to home. Three Floyds Brewpub is just a short drive over into Munster—it’s a Midwest mecca for some of the strongest, zaniest, most enjoyable beers on the microbrew scene, including classic favorites like Zombie Dust and Dreadnought.
Want more? Lansing is a short drive or train ride away from all that Chicago has to offer. Chicago is home to some of the best restaurants in the country, run by world-renowned chefs with the Michelin stars to prove it. Chicago is also home to many local favorites available on the cheap, from hot dog stands and Italian beef joints. But before you head north to enjoy some Vietnamese food on Argyle Street or enjoy music at the famous Green Mill jazz club on the north side of the city, make sure to check out what the Village of Lansing itself has to offer, whether it’s the village’s autumn fest or Lansing’s monthly cruise nights.
Must-See Lansing Destinations
Living in Lansing gives you access to the best cultural experiences in the Midwest. Everything from concerts at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra to performances at the Civic Opera House are just a car ride away in Lansing. Plan a day to museum hop at the incredible Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Science and Industry and the Field Museum. Make the rounds at Brookfield Zoo, Lincoln Park Zoo and the Shedd Aquarium. Spend a day at the beach on Lake Michigan, and since you’re right on the Indiana border, go for a hike on the beautiful Indiana Dunes overlooking the lake.
Lansing is perfectly located right on the border of Illinois and Indiana, with access to an abundance of interstate highways. Take a three-hour road trip down to Indianapolis or a quick 30-minute drive north to Chicago. St. Louis is more of a jaunt at four and a half hours, but still easily accessible via I-55. You’re never far from adventure in Lansing, IL!
