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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Grand Rapids: Michigan's Adventure (in Muskegon), Oval Beach (in Saugatuck) and Ludington State Park (in Ludington). There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, admire the striking features of Meyer May House, kick back and relax at Holland State Park Beach, and examine the collection at Gerald R. Ford Museum.

To see other places to visit, ratings, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Grand Rapids travel route planning app.

August in Grand Rapids sees daily highs of 81°F and lows of 61°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
