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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Grand Rapids: South Haven (Kids' Corner playground, Kal Haven Trail, & more), Ludington (Ludington Waterfront Park, Stearns Park, & more) and Holland (Tunnel Park, Holland State Park Beach, & more). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Gerald R. Ford Museum, admire the landmark architecture of Meyer May House, see the sky in a new way at Grand Rapids Public Museum, and admire the natural beauty at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park.

In October, daytime highs in Grand Rapids are 63°F, while nighttime lows are 44°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
