Whether you call it Furniture City or Beer City, Grand Rapids has made a name for itself as the second largest city in Michigan. Several institutes of higher learning reside in the city, and its many bars and breweries help give Grand Rapids its cool reputation. The Grand River pierces through the city, where its mighty rapids are met with towering skyscrapers. There’s never a dull day or night in the city, with fun and festivities sprinkled throughout each side of the river. You can tour one of its many museums, or stroll down Frederik Meijer Gardens on a sunny afternoon. Catch a Griffins game or lose yourself in a concert at the Van Andel Arena. When Art Prize comes around the city is covered in a wide array of beautiful art, and Laugh Fest is always a good time!
