Welcome to Grand Rapids!

Just 30 miles from the coast of Lake Michigan, Grand Rapids combines the charm of a close-knit small town with the hustle and bustle of a bigger city. A historic furniture-manufacturing center, Grand Rapids is home to some of the world's leading office furniture companies, earning it the nickname Furniture City. More recently, the city itself has become synonymous with the growing craft beer scene, having been named Beer City USA with more than 30 craft breweries in the greater metropolitan area.
