Plan a Family Adventure in Grand Rapids

Want to ensure your kids have the most possible fun on your next getaway? Book a family trip to Grand Rapids and let your kids play their way!

Grand Rapids is so kid-friendly that it’s been named the best place in America to raise a family. It’s packed with play opportunities for every kind of kid: toddlers and tweens, daredevils and daydreamers, introverts and extroverts, the rowdy and the sensitive. When you let your kids lead the play, they’ll gravitate to the things that fit their unique personality – and you’ll reap the dividends in smiles and laughter.

So go ahead and manage the logistics of your Grand Rapids trip – like hotels, transportation and discount passes. Then let your kids choose what makes them happy. Start by scrolling down this page!
