LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - The tourism industry is doing better in mid-Michigan.

On Wednesday, the Greater Lansing Convention and Visitors Bureau said more than 1 million hotel rooms were booked in the area last year.

And, on top of that... the average price of a room went up compared to 2017.

That info came out at the organization's annual meeting at the University Club.
