hip and energetic neighbourhoods. While in town, get in touch with your inner
art critic and visit the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park, a 132-acre outdoor oasis
just 15 minutes from downtown. Experience masterpieces of art and nature that will delight
a multitude of senses at one of the nation’s premier gardens. For example, you can see
Roxy Paine’s mind-blowing Nueron sculpture, or Auguste Rodin’s The Kiss. And for music
lovers, the amphitheatre makes a beautiful venue for outdoor concerts, with nationally-known
artists performing during the summer months. There you have it! Grand Rapids is one cool
city! Be sure to include it on your next US Bound holiday.
