  • 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 »

  • Lots of trails for walks, and classes for all ages. I love this place. Some trails might be closed for dogs, pls check before you bring.
  • Great place to walk. Good amount of trailes. Nice place to observe nature.
  • Blanford Nature Center was just such a wonderful surprise. Nicely maintained trails, a beautiful new Visitor's Center (staffed by an extremely helpful lady), and up close looks at some critters made for a very pleasant morning. It's a real bargain at $3. We enjoyed this place very much and hope to return in fall for the fall foliage and in Spring for some birding.
  • Our nature homeschool group visits monthly here. They have a wider variety of trails that go through meadows, forests, ravines and pond ecosystems. It's a stunning place so close to town and they offer a ton of camps and classes!
  • Love this place. Any season it is a great place to walk and enjoy nature.

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.
