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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Grand Rapids: Gilmore Car Museum (in Hickory Corners), The Musical Fountain (in Grand Haven) and Ludington State Park (in Ludington). There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, admire the striking features of Meyer May House, examine the collection at Gerald R. Ford Museum, and kick back and relax at Holland State Park Beach.
