Grand Rapids

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: Michigan's Adventure (in Muskegon), Holland (Windmill Island Gardens, Holland Farmers Market, & more) and Blueberry Haven (in Grand Haven). The adventure continues: test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, take in the exciting artwork at Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts (UICA), admire the striking features of Meyer May House, and kick back and relax at Oval Beach.

Before you visit Grand Rapids, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

In May, plan for daily highs up to 71°F, and evening lows to 49°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
