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'll find plenty of places to visit near Grand Rapids: Oval Beach (in Saugatuck), Ludington State Park (in Ludington) and Holland (Holland State Park Beach & Nelis' Dutch Village). There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, visit a coastal fixture at Grand Haven Lighthouse and Pier, see the interesting displays at Gerald R. Ford Museum, and get in on the family fun at Michigan's Adventure.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Grand Rapids journey planner .

Expect a daytime high around 81°F in August, and nighttime lows around 61°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
