What to do in Grand Rapids?

In addition to hitting all of the cool breweries Grand Rapids offers, I highly recommend becoming a Brewsader! A couple weeks ago I got my Brew Passport and checked out some local breweries and got my stamps. The game is simple. Grab a passport at a participating brewery and collect ten stamps before GETTING A FREE T-SHIRT! It’s a pretty good gig, right?

Grand Rapids is located close to many beaches. If you are searching for some family fun to wrap up the summer, check out a West Michigan beach before we get struck with all of that snowy weather again. Since Grand Rapids is in the heart of West Michigan, you are only a mere thirty minutes from most beaches.

As always, Grand Rapids has something for everyone, whether it is day time activities or a rapid night life. From picnics, to live bands, to awesome bars, this city has it all. Jazz in the park is still happening every Monday in the summer, Downtown Grand Rapids. If you are looking for a more chill scene, find local artists and hop on the Grand Rapids Music Trail. From big concerts at the intersection and Van Andel, to a live band at your favorite bar, Grand Rapids kills the music game.
