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 9th (Sun), learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at John Ball Zoo, admire the natural beauty at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, then test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedral of Saint Andrew. On your second day here, see the interesting displays at Gerald R. Ford Museum, walk around Tunnel Park, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Holland State Park Beach.
