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 added Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, Long Road Distillers, Saugatuck Dunes State Park, and other attractions to your itinerary. Let the collections at Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts (UICA) and Air Zoo capture your imagination. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Heritage Hill Historic District and Rockford Dam Overlook.

Escanaba to Grand Rapids is an approximately 6-hour car ride. You can also do a combination of car and flight. When traveling from Escanaba in September, plan for somewhat warmer days and about the same nights in Grand Rapids: temperatures range from 76°F by day to 54°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
