Furniture City

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.
Head to Horrocks Farm Market and Tanger Outlets Grand Rapidsfor plenty of shopping. Visiting Holland State Park Beach and Cascade Peace Park will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Grand Rapids: Water Street Gallery (in Douglas), Gilmore Car Museum (in Hickory Corners) and Oval Beach (in Saugatuck). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Gerald R. Ford Museum, admire the natural beauty at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.
