Five-Star Honor for Lansing

There are high marks for the Lansing region in an annual study of quality of life.

Expansion Management Magazine gives Lansing five out of five stars for the second year in a row.

The mid-Michigan area beat out some famous four-star cities like Ann Arbor, Atlanta, Austin, Boston, and San Jose.

The study rates 329 metropolitan areas across the country in nine categories such as housing, affordability, quality of Public schools, standard of living, crime, and traffic congestion just to name a few.
