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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Grand Haven Lighthouse and Pier and Meyer May House. Get some historical perspective at South Haven Lighthouses and R.E. Olds Transportation Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Grand Rapids: Water Street Gallery (in Douglas), Gilmore Car Museum (in Hickory Corners) and Saugatuck (American Spoon & Oval Beach). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Holland State Park Beach, indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink, do a tasting at Robinette's Apple Haus & Winery, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.

In April, plan for daily highs up to 56°F, and evening lows to 36°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
