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 Holland State Park Beach and Silver Lake State Park Pedestrian Dune Access. Explore Grand Rapids' surroundings by going to Stearns Park (in Ludington), Saint Joseph (Whirlpool Compass Fountain, Silver Beach Carousel, & more) and Oval Beach (in Saugatuck). There's more to do: take a peaceful walk through Cascade Peace Park.
