Grand Rapids Travel Updates

The Latest Information from Experience Grand Rapids during COVID-19

The Experience Grand Rapids team is proud to call this community home. From the world-class attractions and outdoor recreation, to the culinary and craft beverage scene - it's an amazing place to live, work and play. We can't wait to welcome you when the time is right. Until then, we ask our visitors and locals alike to follow established health and safety guidelines - practice social distancing and follow the Governor's "Stay Home, Stay Safe" executive order currently in place through April 13, 2020.  During this time, we will update this page frequently with additional vital information, offer ways for you to help our local businesses, and provide ways for you to experience Grand Rapids from where you are.

Your Health is Important to Us

Due to the ever-evolving situation regarding COVID-19, events and cultural attractions are following the guidelines presented by the CDC and Michigan's governor, and have close their doors until further notice. But while their doors may be closed, many offer virtual ways to experience their attraction - right from the comfort of your own home.

Stay Home. Stay Safe. Save Lives.

To combat the spread of COVID-19 in Michigan, Governor Whitmer signed the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” executive order. All Michigan businesses and operations must temporarily suspend in-person operations that are not necessary to sustain or protect life, and all Michiganders must stay in their homes unless they’re a part of that critical infrastructure workforce, engaged in an outdoor activity, or performing tasks necessary to the health and safety of themselves or their family, like going to the hospital, grocery store or to-go dining.
