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 4th (Wed): don't miss a visit to Rockford Dam Overlook, admire the natural beauty at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, then examine the collection at Gerald R. Ford Museum, and finally try your luck at Gun Lake Casino.

To find ratings, where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Grand Rapids route planner.

In September, daily temperatures in Grand Rapids can reach 76°F, while at night they dip to 54°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
