College Town

East Lansing, MI is a college town. Home of Michigan State University (Go State!)

College towns tend to have an eclectic vibe to them.  Arcades, graffiti art, old cars in a crazy color and the weekly bar specials are just some of the things that can be found in a college town.

These specifically can be seen in just a few square feet.  I hardly moved to capture all of the photos below.

For more Sundays in My City please visit Unknown Mami.  She has a great group of folks that show off their towns around the world.  Thanks, Mami!

Have a great day!

Yeah for college towns. I know Madison somewhat better than Ann Arbor or East Lansing, but they are always a happenin place, that's true. Especially on a football Saturday.

Some very eclectic views from standing in almost one spot!

Very enjoyable post. I miss the days when my sons were in the CA college towns of Davis and San Luis Obispo. Both were delightful.

This was awesome. Love the pink elephant and the orange VW.

I cannot begin to count all the quarters I dropped at Pinball Pete's...for years and years...not to mention all the beers I drank at the Riv!
Thanks for a delightful wander around EL!
Go Green!

What a great idea! I'm going to try that-- standing in one spot and seeing how many different photos I can take to capture the location. Fun!.
Happy SIMC, jj

I love the orange car. I like any place with a quirky personality.

Erin said...

I love all the ads for the cheap drinks! Definitely tell it's a college town at that point!

Amy said...

I agree. The orange car is very interesting. I think I'd love to live in a college town.

A lot of people from my job are from Lansing, I'll have to share this with them and ask them if they've ever been to the GOAT! I've never been, but from the pics, it looks like a pretty cool place.

Very cute neon elephant.

I hope that you have a wonderful week.

Iowa City (University of Iowa) is like that too. Great culture and forever youthful. As always great photos!

I had that VW, but it was yellow! And it smelled like hamburgers whenever I turned on the heater.
