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.
You'll explore and learn at Gilmore Car Museum and Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts (UICA). Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Horrocks Farm Market and Water Street Gallery. Get out of town with these interesting Grand Rapids side-trips: Grand Haven Lighthouse and Pier (in Grand Haven), Oval Beach (in Saugatuck) and Holland State Park Beach (in Holland). Next up on the itinerary: admire the striking features of Meyer May House, see the interesting displays at Gerald R. Ford Museum, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.
