Spring is in the air! Get your family out and and come and explore Grand Rapids!
To help you get started, we've rounded up family-friendly things to do in GR each day of the week. Let's go!
Evening Fun All Week Long
If it's MONDAY it's probably a good day to take in a baseball game with our very own West Michigan Whitecaps. Chances are, they will be in town for one of their Monday night games. Each game offers different promotions. Let's Go Whitecaps! Fifth Third Ballpark, 4500 West River Drive, Comstock Park.
TUESDAY evenings offer a few different opportunities. You can stay out late at Frederik Meijer Gardens where special family activities are often planned for evening hours. Or visit the Grand Rapids Public Museum, which also stays open late on Tuesdays. Right now you can take in the Dinosaurs Unearthed exhibit (through April 27) or the Dream It Build It LEGO Exhibit (through Aug 31). Don't forget to ride the carousel while you are there! Frederik Meijer Gardens are located at 1000 East Beltline Ave NE and the Grand Rapids Public Museum is at 272 Pearl Street NW.
On WEDNESDAY make the short drive to Craig's Cruizers where it's Wristband Wednesday from 4pm - 9pm each week. You $22 wristband includes access to the pizza buffet, indoor and outdoor go-karts, laser tag, bumper cars, mini-golf, ropes course, bumper boats and more. 5730 Clyde Park SW, Wyoming MI.
