Grand Rapids

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.
Kids will enjoy Room Escape Games and Holland State Park Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Grand Rapids side-trips: Saint Joseph (Whirlpool Compass Fountain & Silver Beach Carousel), Oval Beach (in Saugatuck) and Gilmore Car Museum (in Hickory Corners). There's much more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, see the interesting displays at Gerald R. Ford Museum, get to know the resident critters at John Ball Zoo, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedral of Saint Andrew.
