According to Only In Your State, there are many great places in the state of Michigan to have a picnic this summer. They recently came up with a list of the 13 "Best Places In Michigan To Have An Unforgettable Picnic." Sadly, there are no "best places" listed that are located in Lansing. The closest place to us that made the list is Kensington MetroPark in Brighton.

There are a couple of other locations that made the list that are only about an hour away from Lansing. They include Rosa Parks Circle in Grand Rapids and the Stepping Stone Falls in Flint. Also, it may surprise a few people but the city of Detroit is represented a couple of times on the list, too. To find out what place was number one and to plan your next picnic, click here.

What do you think of the list? What town/area would you add? Personally, I would add my hometown of Centreville. It has a cool covered bridge...you can  see it here.
