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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Grand Rapids: Holland (Windmill Island Gardens & Holland State Park Beach), Grand Haven Lighthouse and Pier (in Grand Haven) and Oval Beach (in Saugatuck). The adventure continues: take in nature's colorful creations at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, get in on the family fun at Michigan's Adventure, pause for some photo ops at Leonardo da Vinci's Horse, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.
