What to do on a long Weekend

June 16, 2012

While Morgan’s Bat Mitzvah is on Labor Day weekend, there is a lot to do here in West Michigan.  Grand Rapids has a number of museums in town for the family.  These include:

  1. Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park
  2. The Gerald R. Ford Museum
  3. The Grand Rapids Public Museum
  4. The Grand Rapids Children’s Museum
  5. John Ball Zoo
You may even want to check out a Baseball Game with our local minor league team the Whitecaps.  They will be in town this weekend.  They are the minor league team for the Detroit Tigers.

We are also within driving distance of some really great beaches and resort towns.  The beaches here are really sandy and at this time of the year will be nice and warm.  Some describe the beaches as being like Key West but only colder:-)

  1. Saugatuck
  2. Holland
  3. Grand Haven

If you choose to go to Saugatuck or Holland for the Day, there are dune rides that are really a lot of fun!  They will even stop at the top of one so that you can look out over Lake Michigan and the surrounding area.

We are also an hour away from Michigan Adventure Amusement and Water Park

So come plan to make it a long weekend and have some fun!
