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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Gerald R. Ford Museum and Gilmore Car Museum. Visit Grand Haven Lighthouse and Pier and South Haven Lighthouses for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting Grand Rapids side-trips: Oval Beach (in Saugatuck), Upper Macatawa Cycling Trails (in Zeeland) and Horrocks Farm Market (in Lansing). The adventure continues: stroll through Holland State Park Beach and look for all kinds of wild species at Hudsonville Nature Center.
