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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Grand Rapids: Holland (Windmill Island Gardens & Holland State Park Beach) and Gilmore Car Museum (in Hickory Corners). And it doesn't end there: admire the natural beauty at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, admire the landmark architecture of Meyer May House, pause for some photo ops at Leonardo da Vinci's Horse, and examine the collection at Gerald R. Ford Museum.

For reviews, where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Grand Rapids trip planner.

In April, daily temperatures in Grand Rapids can reach 56°F, while at night they dip to 36°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
