One piece of advice or tip you would give to a first time visitor to Grand Rapids?

Enjoy the surroundings! Grand Rapids always has so much going on since it is such a vibrant city as well as it being visually beautiful.

If you are visiting in the fall, make sure to go and enjoy the orchards. West Michigan is so charming during the fall season.
