Work in some art and history when posing in Downtown Grand Rapids. La Grande Vitesse in Calder Plaza and the “Skull Wall” outside Stella’s Lounge are intriguing backgrounds for any photo.  As you make your way through downtown, don’t forget to snap a pic on the the Blue Bridge, one of the longest truss bridges in Michigan and solely for pedestrian use.​

Be sure to remind your followers GR is Beer City USA with a shot from one of GR’s many renowned breweries. As a final parting shot from downtown, head to Ah-Nab-Awen Park along the Grand River and capture the Grand Rapids skyline in all its glory.

The one-of-a-kind Frank Lloyd Wright designed Meyer May House in Heritage Hill is a photographer’s dream. Opened to the public in 1987 after a complete historical renovation, it gives the public a chance to experience a Prairie house exactly as Wright intended.
