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.
On the 30th (Sat), examine the collection at Gerald R. Ford Museum, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, and then make a trip to Windmill Island Gardens. Keep things going the next day: appreciate the history behind Leonardo da Vinci's Horse, admire the natural beauty at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, admire the striking features of Meyer May House, then look for gifts at Downtown Market, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedral of Saint Andrew.
