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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Grand Rapids: Michigan's Adventure (in Muskegon), Holland (Holland State Park Beach, Nelis' Dutch Village, &more) and Saugatuck (Saugatuck Dune Rides, Oval Beach, &more). The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at Gerald R. Ford Museum, appreciate the history behind Leonardo da Vinci's Horse, walk around John Ball Zoo, and admire the striking features of Meyer May House.

In August, daytime highs in Grand Rapids are °F, while nighttime lows are °F.
