Destination of the Week: Grand Rapids, MI-Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park

Destination of the Week: Grand Rapids, MI-Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park

Located about 5.6 miles from downtown, it would be easy to just cross-out a trip to a sculpture park.  Oh, but if you do, you might end up kicking yourself for NOT visiting, especially on a nice day.  The 158-acre complex includes an impressive conservatory, on-site restaurant, and gardens that will inspire.  The sculpture park makes every turn and hill into an experience.  The park’s most famous piece, titled “The American Horse” must be seen in-person to truly appreciate.  Concerts are held during the summer at the garden’s outdoor amphitheater.
