Children's Activities

Grand Rapids is the best place in America to raise a family, says Forbes magazine. We can't argue - the city is filled with activities and interests for every age. Here are a few of our favorite children's activities:

Ride kiddie karts and bumper boats, play miniature golf and laser tag, and just generally have a blast at Craig's Cruisers Family Fun Center.

Visit the Grand Rapids Public Museum. One admission gives you access to kid-friendly exhibits on animals, plants, Native Americans, Grand Rapids history and more. Ride the carousel for $1.

Have a blast on a hayride, get lost in the corn maze or jump to new heights on a jumping pillow at Robinette's Apple Haus & Winery. Enjoy their picturesque bakery and cider bar.
