The holidays are nearly upon us and the excitement is in the air. Everywhere you look there are bright lights, festive decorations and the calendar is loaded with fun events to attend. Things like Wonderland of Lights at Potter Park Zoo, Lansing’s Silver Bells In the City, East Lansing’s Winter Glow and more!
Thanksgiving, Christmas, and all the end of the year holidays always bring such a warm and happy glow with them. Who doesn’t enjoy the sight of twinkling holiday lights in an otherwise cold and dark winter’s night? If you plan on being in the Lansing area this holiday season, you’ll find plenty to enjoy throughout both November and December.
Here at The English Inn Restaurant & Pub, we’ll be decorating the estate in its holiday finest and planning scrumptious holiday dinners. We are so looking forward to sharing the joys of the holiday season with you!
Our Lansing area restaurant and inn may be located outside the city – but only just. The fun and bustle of Lansing and other area hot spots are just minutes away from our quiet country estate. The best of both worlds: an exciting playground to explore with a quiet and comfortable homebase to return to. Perfect!
