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.
Head to Horrocks Farm Market and Loafers Gloryfor some retail therapy. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Grand Mere State Park and Oval Beach. Explore Grand Rapids' surroundings by going to Holland (Holland State Park Beach, Windmill Island Gardens, & more), Saugatuck (Good Goods & Butler Street) and Woldumar Nature Center (in Lansing). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Gilmore Car Museum, identify plant and animal life at Hemlock Crossing, tour the pleasant surroundings at Chippewa Nature Center, and enjoy the sea views from South Haven Lighthouses.
