Grand Rapids

The second largest city in Michigan and a hub of furniture manufacturing, Grand Rapids bears the nickname "Furniture City." However, the destination's original name came from the rapids of the Grand River that once ran through the downtown area.
Kick off your visit on the 28th (Sun): test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, make a trip to Rockford Dam Overlook, admire the natural beauty at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, then see the interesting displays at Gerald R. Ford Museum, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedral of Saint Andrew.

To see other places to visit, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Grand Rapids day trip tool .

In April in Grand Rapids, expect temperatures between 56°F during the day and 36°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
