Grand Rapids Attractions

Places Rated Almanac ranked Grand Rapids as the #3 city in the nation for fun and recreation. Probably because we combine the cultural diversions of a cosmopolitan city with the spectacular recreation of an outdoor paradise.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services has issued a three-week epidemic order: Pause to Save Lives, in effect through December 8. Under this order, entertainment venues and recreational facilities must be closed. Museums and libraries may remain open but guest counts are limited to no more than 30% of capacity. Please check individual websites for details.
