Millennium Park

Reviewed By GoAlong2 - Seattle, Washington

We came to walk the trails. With lakes, ponds, a beach area, boat rentals, playground, and picnic areas, this park has something for everyone. The trails wrap around the ponds and lake and connect to the bike trails that extend to other parks in the area. We enjoyed the forest section as well as the lakes. Many families were there for picnics and kids were splashing in the water.

One of the best multiplex theaters anywhere. Order your popcorn with real butter for 50 cents more. It's worth it.

Craig's Cruisers is great. We have visited every time we end up in the GR area. The pizza buffet is amazing, great variety and quality. There are so many activities to do, you will have a hard time doing them all! Go karts, bumper boats, arcade, and so much more. My kids have a ball running around playing all day. We have discussed having parties here, but travel of guests had made it a challenge. Highly recommend for a fun day.

Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park

View modern sculpture in a stunning garden setting at this combination botanical garden and sculpture park, which features exotic plants, desert and Victorian gardens, wetlands, meadows, and sculptures by famous artists throughout.

We visited in April when the butterflies hatched. The flowers in the conservatory are fragrant and beautiful. The butterflies were delightful. There is a large outside garden but being early spring it was too cold and rainy for the outside. We’ll be back another time.

If you like Frank Lloyd Wright architecture, this is a gem! Fully restored and excellent docents who are well trained and love their "work."

Frog Hollow Boundless Playground

Reviewed By gday2uWMI - Grandville, Michigan

This is a small, unique, nice tiny play area behind Metro Hospital. Adorable frog theme. It has a very small but practical play area, some covered tables and is usually very well-maintained. Very nice getaway for family of patients at the hospital with small kids who need a little space. Is also down the street from the Wyoming MI Veteran Outpatient Clinic and other clinics. I often see a mom or dad playing with kids here while the other parent, friend or family visits a clinic or hospital. In front of the hospital are pretty fountains and ponds that children may also like to check out with a parent or guardian. It is near many fast food establishments, so bring a lunch. Despite all the activity in the area, this remains an off-the-path retreat across the street from wetlands on one side and trees on another. In fact, the wetlands are known to attract some spectular birds like heron, eagles, snow owles and many small songbirds. Sometimes, no one else is there; other times, it is full. You can clearly see the most spectacular sunsets from this location. Nice little retreat. Gezon Park is down the street from this by the large water tower, if the family wants a larger area to explore.

Vander Veen's Dutch Store

Reviewed By flintjarvis - Flint, mi

A "must stop" if you are in the area and are craving Dutch goodies.

If it is made in Holland, you can probably find it here. They have many varieties of foods and treats.

Be sure to check out the genuine wooden shoes and the fun, soft, slipper and garden versions of the classic shoes.

I like the windmill cookies and they have them here.

The prices are reasonable and the service is friendly.

Gerald R. Ford Museum

Grand Rapids' pride in native son and 38th American President Gerald R. Ford is reflected in the museum that honors him, which transports you back to the 70s through interactive displays and holograms, including a chance to eavesdrop on an eventful day in the Oval Office.

Reviewed By luv2r0am - Michigan

We’ve visited several times before, and were pleasantly surprised by the nice recent updates to the Museum. It a very nice tribute to the wonderful Jerry Ford. The Museum does an excellent job in education for groups. There’s a large auditorium and classroom area to handle students, which takes up a majority of the first floor. The exhibits include lots of film to keep things interesting as you tour. I especially liked the film in the Cabinet room, which was unexpected and was very informative. Don’t miss the burial sites outdoors, too.

Grand Rapids Public Museum

The Grand Rapids Public Museum is a place of never-ending inspiration and discovery, with a focus on science, history and culture. We have three floors of core and traveling exhibitions, the Roger B. Chaffee Planetarium, a 1928 Spillman Carousel and a Mighty Wurlitzer Organ.

Reviewed By Mclochlin

We went to the museum for the first time and had a very enjoyable time. We got the extra tickets for their dragons, mermaids and unicorn exhibit. It was well worth the price. We have visited museums in Chicago rather frequently and were very entertained at the Grand Rapids Public Museum. We went with 2 teenage daughters and all had a very good time.

Reviewed By connieree - Grand Rapids, Michigan

My friend and I happened upon a groupon for a mini golf course that boasted not just 18 holes but a whopping 39! Obviously we were intrigued. We visited their website and though the photos were a little outdated, we decided to try it out.
There are two courses here behind a large family home. If comparing it to a course like that at ajs I'd say it's a little old fashioned but more challenging and creative. They have a friendly and very welcoming staff who make you feel as though you're playing in your own backyard. They have a large deck where you can relax outside their snack shack and chairs throughout the courses.
One course has 19 holes, the other 21. Some take a bit of thought to successfully execute but that's what makes it fun. We used the groupon to try out the first course and then stayed and did the second as well. We'll definitely return
