Description
Grand Rapids is Michigan’s second largest city. Visit the state's only presidential museum and the state's second busiest tourist attraction, one of the top 100 places to visit before you die - Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park.

Located in the center of Michigan's West Coast and only 2-1/2 hours from Detroit and 3 hours from Chicago. Visit Leonardo da Vinci’s Horse, the largest equine sculpture in the Western Hemisphere, at the centerpiece of a collection of more than 120 works by world-renowned sculptors at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park. The 125-acre Gardens are also home to the largest tropical conservatory in Michigan with exotic plants, waterfalls and streams. Trams take visitors through the sculpture park and a recreated 1930's farm. History comes alive in Heritage Hill Historic District featuring 60 architectural styles from Victorian gingerbread to the designs of Frank Lloyd Wright and step-on guides available. Nearby is the nation’s most entertaining presidential museum, the Gerald R. Ford Museum.

Across the street is Grand Rapids Public Museum with three stories of state-of-the-art exhibits exploring the area’s furniture industry and Native American culture. You can also enjoy a ride on their restored 1928 carousel.

Dining opportunities vary from elegant cuisine in a restored Victorian mansion to the culinary cutting edge in the new downtown entertainment district. A dinner cruise is even offered on the Grand Lady Riverboat. The all-encompassing features of the Grand Rapids area make it a superb destination for any group travel.
