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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Rainbow Ranch and Mount Baldhead Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Grand Rapids: Muskegon (Hackley and Hume Historic Site & USS LST 393), Country Dairy (in New Era) and New Holland Brewing Co. - Production Campus (in Holland). There's much more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at North Beach, go for a walk through Rockford Dam Overlook, and take a stroll through Heritage Hill Historic District.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Kalamazoo Battle Creek International Airport, MBS International Airport and South Bend Regional Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 25°C, and evening lows to 11°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
