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 19th (Wed): get to know the fascinating history of Heritage Hill Historic District, examine the collection at Gerald R. Ford Museum, then stroll around Millennium Park, and finally tour the pleasant surroundings at Cascade Peace Park.

To see ratings, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Grand Rapids trip site .

Expect a daytime high around 79°F in June, and nighttime lows around 59°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
