Grand Rapids


Grand Rapids, Michigan, is a welcoming Midwestern city that provides plenty of activities for tourists, from sports to cultural attractions. Named after the river that runs through the metropolitan area, water is never more than six miles away from any spot in the city. Because of this, fishing, boating, and swimming are popular activities during the warm summer months. Grand Rapids tourism also focuses on cultural activities, such as touring the historic Heritage Hill district, which features 60 different styles of architecture. The Gerald R. Ford Museum pays tribute to the nation's 38th president, who grew up in Grand Rapids. Flights to Grand Rapids land about 12 miles from downtown, at Gerald R. Ford International Airport.
