Okemos seems like it’s in the middle of nowhere. In fact, it once was. Okemos was once a Native American settlement and trading point for the Ojibwa Indians, and the town was named after Chief John Okemos.
Today Okemos is a thriving but slightly remote suburb of Lansing. Lansing attracts a diverse population because it’s both Michigan’s capitol and is home to Michigan State University. In 2011, CNN Money magazine said Okemos was the 12th best city for hip, young singles. Okemos is an attractive place for people to live if they want a more rural, slower-paced alternative to Lansing.

Parking can be at a premium in some cities where spaces are challenging to find. Some Okemos apartments offer parking options, either outside in a common area or within a private garage.
Ask about the stipulations around the parking. Those may include how many guests are allowed and where tenants park.
Some apartments may only allow parking in front of your own unit. Guest parking may be in a common area for up to one person.
If parking is scarce, look around the area before you sign a lease. Ample street parking in a neighborhood championed for its safety is probably fine. However, it’s probably not worth signing a lease if it means battling for daily parking for you and your guests.
Research whether you need a city permit to park in the neighborhood. Look into the associated costs and what to do about visitors who need parking.
Some tenants prefer garage parking near their units. However, an open-air lot may prove cheaper.
Keep in mind that the cost of wear and tear from parking outside can add up. It may be less expensive, in the long run, to look for an apartment with garage parking.
