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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Grand Rapids: Holland (Holland State Park Beach, Holland Peanut Store, & more), Ludington State Park (in Ludington) and Little Sable Point Lighthouse (in Mears). There's lots more to do: admire the natural beauty at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, pause for some photo ops at Leonardo da Vinci's Horse, and enjoy the sea views from Grand Haven Lighthouse and Pier.

In July, plan for daily highs up to 82°F, and evening lows to 61°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
