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.
Start off your visit on the 8th (Sat): appreciate the extensive heritage of Heritage Hill Historic District, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at John Ball Zoo, then see the interesting displays at Gerald R. Ford Museum, and finally shop like a local with Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts (UICA).

To find reviews, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, read our Grand Rapids trip itinerary builder website .

In June, daytime highs in Grand Rapids are 79°F, while nighttime lows are 59°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
