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.
Visiting Ludington State Park and Holland State Park Beach will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Grand Rapids: Ludington (Big Sable Point Lighthouse & Stearns Park), Gilmore Car Museum (in Hickory Corners) and Holland (Saugatuck Dunes State Park, Windmill Island Gardens, & more). The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Oval Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Silver Beach County Park, take a peaceful walk through Cascade Peace Park, and pause for some photo ops at Leonardo da Vinci's Horse.
