    Grand Rapids Reunions

    Grand Rapids is the perfect place to host any kind of reunion - family, school, military, you name it. We offer both big-city excitement and awesome outdoor recreation, so every member of your group will find lots to see and do. We're centrally located and easy to reach by plane, train and automobile. Once you're here, everything is close and convenient - virtually every attraction is within 15 minutes of our entertainment-rich downtown.

    Plus, we deliver an incredible value - nobody else can give you so much for so little. That's one of the reasons we've been named America's best place to raise a family and one of the nation's best places to retire. These honors also prove that Grand Rapids is great for all ages - a key benefit for reunion groups!
