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.
Explore hidden gems such as Blandford Nature Center and Heritage Hill Historic District. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Grand Rapids: American Spoon (in Saugatuck), North Beach (in South Haven) and Ionia State Recreation Area (in Ionia). The adventure continues: examine the collection at Gerald R. Ford Museum, tee off at Pilgrim's Run Golf Club, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedral of Saint Andrew, and identify plant and animal life at Calvin Ecosystem Preserve & Native Gardens.
