In the middle of our Michigan trip, we took a little 2-day adventure, just that two of us. We kicked it off by driving from Flint to Grand Rapids. Wow, I had NO clue that GR was such a cool little City. It was probably the size of our town, but super nice with a GREAT downtown. I loved that everything was old looking, but super clean and renovated feeling.
The majority of our day was spent checking out the Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park.
The garden areas were pretty freaking neat. Most of it was indoors, temperature controlled areas per the plant habitats. It was cold and windy outside, but the desert plant area was hot and humid, the jungle plant area was humid and misty.
Those are some of my favorites from the outdoor sculpture areas. There were tons of areas, and paths to take; we could have really stayed there all day wandering area finding new things. I highly recommend if you’re close, or even not close, to check it out. The indoor sculpture gallery was really neat as well, but no photos were allowed.
The rest of our time spent in Grand Rapids was checking out a few beer spots, but that’s a whole separate post 🙂
