You can spend hours exploring the countryside around Grand Rapids but you can still get much out of a break there by enjoying the various cultural and historic attractions.

There are miles of walks, fascinating sculptures, including a finished version of Leonardo da Vinci’s horse, and a great park for children to play in. Another must is a visit to the Gerald Ford Museum where he and his wife are buried in the grounds. Their home, there is a lot of memorabilia and displays of his notable achievements whilst in office.
