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.
Kick off your visit on the 18th (Sat): look and learn at Grand Rapids Public Museum, admire the natural beauty at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, and then see the interesting displays at Gilmore Car Museum. Keep things going the next day: kick back and relax at Holland State Park Beach, then appreciate the history behind Leonardo da Vinci's Horse, then see the interesting displays at Gerald R. Ford Museum, and finally take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedral of Saint Andrew.
