Grand Rapids

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.
On the 11th (Fri), enjoy the sand and surf at Holland State Park Beach, then admire the natural beauty at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, and then test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms. Here are some ideas for day two: examine the collection at Gerald R. Ford Museum, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at John Ball Zoo, and then see the interesting displays at Gilmore Car Museum.

In October in Grand Rapids, expect temperatures between 63°F during the day and 44°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
