    My husband and I took this beautiful nature walk this morning. We had a great time. I'm so glad they allow us to bring dogs with us. Even it's easy to get lost (the signs are not so clear), the place ...  more »

    Great Outdoor location and walking trails, good for Leashed Pets, wish they had more donors to provide cash to expand but a cute little zoo like area with natural wildlife. Fun for Kids and good for History of the local area.

    Great trail system, although it tends to be overly muddy almost year-round. Lots of wildlife (birds) in the area, great visitor center, friendly staff, and lots of volunteer and outreach programs.

    Love walking around this place, and it is extremely cheap. Wear outdoor shoes though as it can get dirty! They have a beautiful facility!

Where to stay in Grand Rapids

Only five hotels provide lodging downtown, but each charms its guests with a distinctive character. A small collection of bed and breakfasts and inns populate Old Town. These hotels are a five-minute walk from the city's main attractions, top restaurants, and conference centers, so they tend to fill up fast. Book a room early to ensure you get the lodging of your choice. There are also hotel chains near the airport and in residential areas; public transport and taxi service link these to the city's downtown.
