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.
For shopping fun, head to Horrocks Farm Market or Bowerman Blueberries Farm Market. Popular historic sites such as South Haven Lighthouses and R.E. Olds Transportation Museum are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Grand Rapids: Grand Haven Lighthouse and Pier (in Grand Haven) and Gilmore Car Museum (in Hickory Corners). Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at Gerald R. Ford Museum, pause for some photo ops at Leonardo da Vinci's Horse, admire the natural beauty at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, and admire the landmark architecture of Meyer May House.

To see photos, more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Grand Rapids trip planner.

In May in Grand Rapids, expect temperatures between 71°F during the day and 49°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 19th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
