A Charming Collection of Cities

Frederik Meijer Gardens

The West region is a sigh of contentment, an  exhale, and a feeling of rejuvenation all in one.  This region is as diverse as the rest of the state—so much to offer in a comparatively small space. The opportunities here are as wide and varied as the travelers that flock to the area. West Michigan has a distinct personality. Experience Grand Rapids as you visit Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park, an incredible outdoor sculpture collection, intriguing traveling exhibits, and 132 acres of gardens including a tropical conservatory and a carnivorous plant house. Wander the Victorian Gardens and get lost in the timeless beauty of this special landmark. Take part in a living, breathing museum as breathtaking works of art are installed along the cityscape and art lovers walk through the town.

Step into Holland, where Dutch culture is famously celebrated. The Tulip Time Festival takes over the city each spring, resplendent with tulips, wooden shoes, and more. The Netherlands comes to life as visitors immerse themselves in Klompen dancing, taking a waltz through a Dutch village at their leisure, and visiting a 248-year-old working Dutch windmill. From wooden shoes to a working windmill, Holland will provide authentic Dutch experiences. Located on the lakeshore, Muskegon is home to plenty of local flair and provides the backdrop of blue skies and beautiful beaches. Once named the eighth wonder of the world, Lake Michigan sand dunes will provide visitors vivid scenery unlike anywhere in the state. Known for more than beaches, Muskegon is rich in culture and history. The Lakeshore Museum will enrich visitors as they learn the history and significance of several of Muskegon’s historical lumber baron families and establishments.

Journey to the northern part of West Michigan where the air is still and sweet. This area is a heady mix of old-fashioned and modern. In Ludington and Manistee, you can relax along the lakeshore and enjoy a small town vibe complete with ice cream hops, fudge, and all the vacation necessities. These cities are easy going and easy to love with small town charm in abundant. With its 180 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline, Traverse City is a place we would all like to call home. Board a tall ship and enjoy first hand the fresh, clean air as the Northern Michigan wind blows through your hair. Help raise the main sail or simply sit back and enjoy the majestic view.  As you journey further north, explore the Music House Museum and enjoy a rare collection of musical instruments as you listen to the music they make.

Visit Castle Farms where you can wander the gardens, take a guided tour, or just enjoy the architecture of a French-style chateau. Be enchanted by a shrine, one of the largest and most well known in the state, was full erected in 1959. Worshippers have been flocking here ever since. And view the magnificent scenery and sunsets on Lake Michigan. Whatever you desire, you will find that all the communities in this region are full of wonder, natural or otherwise. The West region of Michigan is a prime example of what makes this state so singular. Within the space of few hundred miles, visitors can have completely different but equally unforgettable Michigan experiences. Live it up in an urban city filled with progressive cuisine, cutting-edge art, and several music venues. Make your way north for an even-keeled visit filled with sun, sand, sports, and sipping drinks. Whatever you want, at your fingertips. That’s West Michigan.
