Grand Rapids is often referred to as the economic and cultural hub of West Michigan, and it’s actually one of the fastest-growing cities in the Midwest.
In Grand Rapids, there is always something to do whether you’re interested in arts, sports, entertainment, nightlife. Take a look at some of our favorite places to visit in the city of Grand Rapids.
Fredrik Meijer Gardens And Sculpture Park
Are you a fan of modern art? What about stunning outdoor spaces? At the Fredrik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park, you’ll find both, plus exotic plants, desert and Victorian gardens, wetlands and meadows.

At the Gerald R. Ford Museum, guests can find documents, artifacts, photographs and videos that give a closer look into the life of Michigan’s only President. The museum even includes a life-sized Oval Office and Cabinet Room.
For 10 years, Grand Rapids has (very proudly) held the title of Beer City, USA. With 40 craft breweries all within a 30-minute drive, many people travel to Grand Rapids to tour the city, in search of the most delicious brew.
In fact, you can even take a ride in the Grand Rapids Beer Tours party bus and they’ll drive you from one brewery to the next while you sample different beers. With great breweries also comes great food, so there’s plenty of options to curb your appetite, too.
Boulder Ridge Wild Animal Park
If you ask the residents at Cascade Trails, they’ll tell you that the Boulder Ridge Wild Animal Park is one of the best places in the whole city. There, guests can see 120 species of wild animals and grab a bite to eat at the restaurant, Boulder Bites.
At the Boulder Ridge Wild Animal Park, guests even have the opportunity to feed some of the animals, and that’s exactly what we did! Our residents had a great time learning all about the different animals they feed, including giraffes, camels, deer, prairie dogs, goats and even a snapping turtle.
