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 Meyer May House and South Haven Lighthouses. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Grand Rapids: Ludington State Park (in Ludington), Little Sable Point Lighthouse (in Mears) and Saugatuck (Oval Beach, American Spoon, &more). Pack the 7th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Nelis' Dutch Village. There's much more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, visit a coastal fixture at Grand Haven Lighthouse and Pier, steep yourself in history at Hackley and Hume Historic Site, and enjoy the sand and surf at Silver Beach County Park.

For maps, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Grand Rapids trip planner.

In September, plan for daily highs up to 76°F, and evening lows to 54°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
