Q & A with Amanda Toy, associate director of sales, Greater Lansing Convention & Visitors Bureau
Q: It’s a beautiful summer day in Michigan. What would we most likely find you doing?
A: I hear it is supposed to be nice, mild weather this summer: my favorite! You will either find me taking adventurous walks with the kiddos at one of Greater Lansing’s awesome parks or enjoying a cool summer drink on the back deck with my hubby.
Q: Would you rather swim in a pool, lake or ocean…and why?
A: If I can see my toes, I vote for the lake! There is nothing that shouts “Pure Michigan” like wading around in one of our GREAT lakes.
Q: What’s your favorite summer vacation spot?
A: Kayaking is the best (usually with a kiddo riding along). So relaxing!
Q: If you could be a summer cocktail, what would your name be and what would you taste like?
A: “Summer Chill!” Mint, gin, sprite, raspberries and blueberries.
Q: What’s your favorite summer smell? Summer taste? Summer feel?
A: Smelling the lilacs in spring reminds me of the green, warm summer right around the corner. BBQ chicken with fresh fruit is a summer must. I’m not one who likes to be hot, so a cool breeze on an early morning walk is the best feeling of summer!
