Furniture City

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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Grand Haven Lighthouse and Pier and Hackley and Hume Historic Site. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Grand Rapids: Saugatuck (Oval Beach, American Spoon, &more), Ludington State Park (in Ludington) and Little Sable Point Lighthouse (in Mears). Pack the 7th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Nelis' Dutch Village. And it doesn't end there: take in nature's colorful creations at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, examine the collection at Gilmore Car Museum, get in on the family fun at Silver Beach Carousel, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.

For maps, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Grand Rapids trip itinerary builder.

September in Grand Rapids sees daily highs of 76°F and lows of 54°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
