Welcome to Holt
Conveniently located on the southern edge of Lansing
Situated just south of Lansing’s main loop, Holt is a quiet suburb conveniently close to other exterior communities, thanks in part to its proximity to Interstate 96. Lush, green lawns line neighborhood streets, many of which lead to one of the neighborhood's several parks. These parks include playgrounds, green spaces, hiking and biking trails, and beachfront swimming areas. Holt's real estate options consist of a variety of pleasant abodes on spacious lots, several of which have just been constructed in recent years. Residents of Holt enjoy access to the city center, a fair cost of living, and an impeccable standard of living.

This quiet community on the south side of Lansing is peaceful, friendly, and conveniently situated amid the city's other outer neighborhoods. Parks, trails, and farmers markets are other simple yet frequently enjoyed outings taken advantage of by all, thanks to Holt’s peaceful, out-of-the-way location. Errands are easy to cross off of to-do lists, with many big box brands like Target located in the immediate vicinity. More minor, family-owned eateries and watering holes bring a sense of community, togetherness, and charm to Holt, where real heart and friendliness are observed seven days a week.
Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping
With so many miles of gorgeous green pathways surrounding the community, several locals choose to take up biking in their free time and make Saturday morning rides a regular part of life. Scooter’s Pro Cycle is a one-stop shop for all things cycling, from tuneups to tire replacements (and you can buy bikes there). Scooter’s also carries bikes for youngsters so the entire family can get involved.
Zaytoon is a top choice around town, especially if you need to refuel after exercise. This authentic Mediterranean restaurant has been featured on “Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives” with Guy Fieri, who lost himself in their chicken Shawarma and garlic dipping sauce. Kebabs and lamb chops are also top menu selections at this neighborhood institution.
At the end of a long day, locals gather at Darb‘s Crystal Bar to wet their whistles and unwind. Frequently referred to as “the best little bar you’ll ever find” by several locals, patrons come for the cold drinks but stay for the excellent company and friendly service. Darb’s also regularly puts on a slew of fun events like game nights and live music, and it even hosts the occasional food truck.
Things To Do
With so many wide-open green spaces, Holt is at no loss for parks and fresh air. Valhalla Park spans 45 acres and is the town's largest park. Guests enjoy access to waterfront trails, baseball and softball fields, fishing, and playground equipment for youngsters. Esker Landing is a nearby 16-acre alternative with a fishing dock; it opened in late 2019. While these parks offer year-round recreation options to locals, the Holt Farmers Market combines retail with fresh air. Here, local produce, homemade deli items, baked goods, coffee, honey, and more await your discovery, all of which are sourced from local vendors.
