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.
Attractions like Holland State Park Beach and Nelis' Dutch Village make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with these side-trips from Grand Rapids: Muskegon (Michigan's Adventure & The Monet Garden of Muskegon), Water Street Gallery (in Douglas) and Holland (Windmill Island Gardens & Holland Farmers Market). There's lots more to do: test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, take an in-depth tour of Grand Rapids Public Museum, tour the pleasant surroundings at John Ball Zoo, and pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedral of Saint Andrew.

In April, plan for daily highs up to 56°F, and evening lows to 36°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 6th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
