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.
Popular historic sites such as South Haven Lighthouses and Little Sable Point Lighthouse are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Grand Rapids: Saugatuck (Oval Beach, American Spoon, & more), Ludington State Park (in Ludington) and Grand Haven Lighthouse and Pier (in Grand Haven). Pack the 7th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Nelis' Dutch Village. There's lots more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, admire the striking features of Meyer May House, kick back and relax at Silver Beach County Park, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Holland State Park Beach.

You can plan Grand Rapids trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

In September, daily temperatures in Grand Rapids can reach 76°F, while at night they dip to 54°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
