Grand Rapids — 4 nights

Furniture City

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.
Family-friendly places like Room Escape Games and Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to Kalamazoo Institute of Arts (in Kalamazoo), Saint Joseph (Krasl Art Center, St. Joseph Lighthouses, &more) and Gilmore Car Museum (in Hickory Corners). And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of Grand Rapids Public Museum, walk around Cascade Peace Park, admire the landmark architecture of Meyer May House, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at John Ball Zoo.

Expect a daytime high around 56°F in April, and nighttime lows around 36°F.
