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 22nd (Thu): examine the collection at Gilmore Car Museum, then enjoy the sand and surf at Holland State Park Beach, and then look for gifts at Holland Peanut Store. On your second day here, examine the collection at Gerald R. Ford Museum, browse the fresh offerings at Holland Farmers Market, then get a taste of the local shopping with Water Street Gallery, and finally stroll through Oval Beach.
