REO Town

The car-centric sense of community that built this historic commercial and residential district is alive and well among its alternately practical and whimsical shops, professional buildings, loft apartments, and home-grown pubs and eateries. With easy access to the Lansing River Trail, downtown and the expressway, this attractive stretch of Washington Street south of I-496 has stayed true to its automotive roots while establishing a strong reputation for festivals, events and art sales.
