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.
Start off your visit on the 12th (Sun): learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at John Ball Zoo, then see the interesting displays at Gerald R. Ford Museum, then test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, and finally stop by Downtown Market Grand Rapids.

To see traveler tips, ratings, and more tourist information, use the Grand Rapids trip planner.

In May in Grand Rapids, expect temperatures between 71°F during the day and 49°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
