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.

On the 5th (Fri), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: see the interesting displays at Gerald R. Ford Museum, then take a leisurely stroll along Grand Haven Lighthouse and Pier, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Holland State Park Beach.
