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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate South Haven Lighthouses and Cathedral of Saint Andrew. Do some cultural sightseeing at Gerald R. Ford Museum and Grand Haven Lighthouse and Pier. Change things up with these side-trips from Grand Rapids: Oval Beach (in Saugatuck), Gilmore Car Museum (in Hickory Corners) and Holland State Park Beach (in Holland). Next up on the itinerary: admire the natural beauty at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, admire the landmark architecture of Meyer May House, and test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms.

For where to stay, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Grand Rapids trip builder site .

In May in Grand Rapids, expect temperatures between 71°F during the day and 49°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 27th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
