Furniture City

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.
On the 8th (Sat), stop by Heritage Hill Historic District, stroll around John Ball Zoo, then examine the collection at Gerald R. Ford Museum, and finally take in the exciting artwork at Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts (UICA).

To see photos, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Grand Rapids vacation planning tool.

In June, plan for daily highs up to 79°F, and evening lows to 59°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
