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.
Explore Grand Rapids' surroundings by going to Gilmore Car Museum (in Hickory Corners), Soaring Eagle Casino (in Mount Pleasant) and Holland (Holland State Park Beach, Nelis' Dutch Village, & more). And it doesn't end there: test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, admire nature's wide array of creatures at John Ball Zoo, admire the natural beauty at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, and look and learn at Grand Rapids Public Museum.
