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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Cathedral of Saint Andrew and R.E. Olds Transportation Museum. Step out of the city life by going to Ionia State Recreation Area and Blandford Nature Center. Venture out of the city with trips to Hackley and Hume Historic Site (in Muskegon), Fishing Charters & Tours (in Saint Joseph) and Carl G. Fenner Nature Center (in Lansing). And it doesn't end there: delve into the lush surroundings at Dahlem - Jackson's Nature Place, admire the landmark architecture of Meyer May House, stroll around Millennium Park, and see the interesting displays at Gerald R. Ford Museum.

Expect a daytime high around 79°F in June, and nighttime lows around 59°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Fri) so you can travel back home.
