On your next trip to Grand Rapids, make sure to employ our Grand Rapids car hire services as your main means of transportation through the city. Grand Rapids is the second-largest city in the state of Michigan.

The city is served by the Gerald R. Ford Airport, but you can also reach the city via rail and road of course. If you do land here you can always consider employing our Grand Rapids car rental services and have a car of your choice ready and waiting for you at the airport at an hour that you specify.

Once in the city, while it is not known for being a big tourist pull, there are a few things to see and do that will surely occupy your time on your stay there, for instance the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park.

This place will easily eat up at least four hours of your time easy, ideally you’d want to spend an entire day visiting this place because it has that many things to offer. You can walk the outdoor nature trails and the boardwalk or you can study world-class sculpture including a giant sculpture of Leonardo da Vinci; if you have children, there’s a children’s garden available where they can run around and enjoy endless hours of fun.

The indoor areas of the park feature special sculpture exhibitions and this is also where you can see the largest tropical conservatory in the entire state where you can see arid and carnivorous plants.

The Gerald R. Ford Museum chronicles the somewhat ‘accidental’ presidency of the United States of Gerald R. Ford who was the only Chief Executive who was never actually elected to serve.

The city plays host to quite a few festivals throughout the year, especially during the warmer months. The Festival of the Arts for instance takes place during a summer weekend and is the country’s largest all-volunteer arts festival.

The Fulton Street Artisan’s Market is an open-air market where you can find lots of arts and crafts.

These have of course only been a small part of the things that you can see and do in Grand Rapids so make sure to employ our Grant Rapids car hire services in order to better experience the city and its surroundings.
