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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Grand Haven Lighthouse and Pier and South Haven Lighthouses. For shopping fun, head to Horrocks Farm Market or Water Street Gallery. Change things up with these side-trips from Grand Rapids: Muskegon (Hackley and Hume Historic Site, USS LST 393, & more), Lansing (Potter Park Zoo, R.E. Olds Transportation Museum, & more) and Grand Haven (Rosy Mound Natural Area, Pere Marquette 1223, & more). Pack the 26th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Nelis' Dutch Village. The adventure continues: examine the collection at Gilmore Car Museum, immerse yourself in nature at Ludington State Park, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, and take in the exciting artwork at Shiawassee Arts Center.

To find more things to do, traveler tips, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Grand Rapids day trip app .

In March, plan for daily highs up to 42°F, and evening lows to 24°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
