I'll be in Lansing the week after Christmas and want to meet up with my sister who lives in East Grand Rapids for dinner. Any suggestions for a place in between?
I know this question is from a long time ago, but there is a city called "Lake Odessa" which is about 45 minutes from both Lansing and Grand Rapids. It's a little ways off the highway but it's probably the best spot for "in the middle".
Otherwise, Portland is the only city that is really near the highway between the two cities. It is a lot closer to Lansing than it is to Grand Rapids though. It's still about 45 minutes from East Grand Rapids, but it is only about 30 minutes from Lansing. It's a much bigger city than Lake Odessa too.
