Downtown Grand Rapids Walking Tour

Slip on your comfortable shoes for a fun, fascinating look at one of Michigans cleanest, safest, most dynamic downtowns. The route is only a mile or so long but it takes you all the way from Berlin to Vietnam!

Visit four world-class museums. Shop for local goods. Tour a dazzling art deco hotel and admire the Italianate facades of 1860s-era commercial buildings. Take in a free concert or ice skate under the stars in an outdoor gathering space designed by a world-renowned artist. And dont miss the 43-foot tall bright red sculpture that symbolizes the citys artistic spirit.
