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.
You've now added Van Andel Arena to your itinerary. Explore Grand Rapids' surroundings by going to Fetch Brewing Company (in Whitehall), Holland (Mount Pisgah, Holland State Park Beach, & more) and Ludington (Ludington North Breakwater Light, Ludington State Park, & more). The adventure continues: take in nature's colorful creations at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, get to know the resident critters at John Ball Zoo, see the sky in a new way at Grand Rapids Public Museum, and admire the landmark architecture of Meyer May House.
