Grandville is a city in Kent County in the U.S. Change things up with these side-trips from Grandville: Gilmore Car Museum (in Hickory Corners), Muskegon (Michigan's Adventure & Pere Marquette Park) and Saint Joseph (Silver Beach County Park & Whirlpool Compass Fountain). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Silver Lake State Park, take in the waterfront at Grand Haven Lighthouse and Pier, enjoy the sea views from Little Sable Point Lighthouse, and stop by Changing Tymes.

For photos, more things to do, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Grandville day trip site .

Kalamazoo to Grandville is an approximately 1-hour car ride. In July, plan for daily highs up to 82°F, and evening lows to 61°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Charlottesville.

Situated at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Charlottesville is perhaps best known as the home of three of the United States' founding fathers, including Thomas Jefferson.
Venture out of the city with trips to Kings Dominion (in Doswell), Canal Basin Square (in Scottsville) and Natural Bridge (Virginia Safari Park & The Natural Bridge of Virginia). And it doesn't end there: cruise along Skyline Drive, witness the site of a historic battle at Manassas National Battlefield Park, learn about all things military at National Museum of the Marine Corps, and admire the landmark architecture of University of Virginia.

To plan Charlottesville vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Traveling by car from Grandville to Charlottesville takes 11.5 hours. Alternatively, you can fly. Expect a daytime high around 84°F in August, and nighttime lows around 65°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 10th (Sat) to allow time for travel back home.
