Grand Rapids

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 9th (Sat): explore the engaging exhibits at Grand Rapids Children's Museum, then see the interesting displays at Gerald R. Ford Museum, then take in nature's colorful creations at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, and finally test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: pause for some photo ops at Leonardo da Vinci's Horse, kick back and relax at Holland State Park Beach, and then make a trip to Windmill Island Gardens.

For where to stay, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Grand Rapids online route planner .

In February, plan for daily highs up to 33°F, and evening lows to 17°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
