Grand Rapids sits on the banks of the Grand River, just 30 miles east of Lake Michigan. The city offers visitors a surprising amount of interesting things to see and do. With four distinct seasons, your activities will likely depend on when you choose to visit. Temperatures during winter are cold, with daytime highs of only 17 – 25 degrees Fahrenheit, and an average of 75 inches of snowfall each year. Fewer tourists visit during winter, other than over the holiday stretch, so you can find great deals on flights and rooms. During the spring as the temperatures rise, so does the influx of visitors, so this is the busiest time of the year for tourism. Summers in Grand Rapids are comfortably warm, ranging from 73 – 75 degrees Fahrenheit, so there’s plenty of opportunities to enjoy the many outdoor activities on offer, like mountain biking, paddling, or visiting the shores of Lake Michigan. From September – November, the tourists clear out as the temperatures slowly diminish. This may be another good time to find affordable lodgings, and the fall scenery is gorgeous.
