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. The rapids have been tamed, and the banks of the river serve as a location for outdoor activities like hiking and cycling. Adjacent to downtown you'll find Heritage Hill, one of the biggest historical districts in the United States, with 1,300 buildings that represent almost every type of American architecture, from Prairie to Greek Revival. The city was ranked the number one U.S. travel destination by Lonely Planet in 2014 for its 25 craft breweries, Winter Beer Festival, and world-class art attractions. Our United States tour planner allows you to schedule your trip to Grand Rapids, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.
