1. I grew up in Haslett
Not too far from East Lansing (and far superior to Okemos in my opinion) where there are multiple cultural and sports choices, Lansing has Lugnuts minor league baseball, there are pretty good restaurants around, nice scenic opportunities; canoeing on the Red Cedar, the ledges in Grand Ledge, sailing on Lake Lansing, horseback riding in Williamston.

The Ingham County Democrats are VERY active; my mother has been part of that scene for years. She loves it.

Lansing area is only about an hour (little more) away from Clare, the 'Gateway to the North.' You can be in Mackinaw City in three and a half hours.

I totally recommend Haslett over both Okemos and Holt. East Lansing, though, has some great neighborhoods; the Flower Pot and the neighborhood just north of Grand River (Collingwood, Snyder, Bailey, etc.) is lovely. In fact, I know of a great house for sale there.
