Welcome to Grand Rapids

Sitting handsomely upon the banks of the Grand River and just 30 miles east of Lake Michigan, Grand Rapids (“GR”) is the second-largest city in Michigan. It boasts an impressive history and vibrant downtown with lots to see and do. From the arts and museums to renowned restaurants and breweries, every visitor is bound to find something to love. We invite you to experience Grand Rapids during your stay throughout this year’s National Working Waterfronts & Waterways symposium and see what makes it Pure Michigan.
