Millennium Park

Reviewed By GoAlong2 - Seattle, Washington

We came to walk the trails. With lakes, ponds, a beach area, boat rentals, playground, and picnic areas, this park has something for everyone. The trails wrap around the ponds and lake and connect to the bike trails that extend to other parks in the area. We enjoyed the forest section as well as the lakes. Many families were there for picnics and kids were splashing in the water.

One of the best multiplex theaters anywhere. Order your popcorn with real butter for 50 cents more. It's worth it.

Grand Ravines Dog Park

Reviewed By Gary F

The Pearline Ravines in East Allendale are an amazing combination of geography, wildlife and plants, running the full range from prairie to wetland to flowing stream. Carefully marked trails take the visitor through a wonderland not much different from what might have been found when Native Americans camped and hunted this area.

While the twin ravine parks are the primary interest of the location, the dog park offers a large open space for the family pets, nicely laid out and secure. Make a day of it, and don't forget to bring a canoe or kayak for a leisurely drift down the loop of the Grand River.

Hudsonville Nature Center

Reviewed By Bernardo F - New York City, New York

Hidden back through a residential area, it was a huge natural forested park. Lots of trees and grassy areas, plus trails and other areas to explore Though I didn't find any huge parking lots, there was a small one at the entrance. It was clean and maintained nicely.

Craig's Cruisers is great. We have visited every time we end up in the GR area. The pizza buffet is amazing, great variety and quality. There are so many activities to do, you will have a hard time doing them all! Go karts, bumper boats, arcade, and so much more. My kids have a ball running around playing all day. We have discussed having parties here, but travel of guests had made it a challenge. Highly recommend for a fun day.

Grand Lady Riverboat

Reviewed By martenve - Jenison, Michigan

The Grand Lady is a genuine paddle boat that cruises the Grand River. It often features a live band and some wonderful food and drinks while cruising the river. A nostalgic "Mark Twain" feeling is certainly a part of this wonderful experience. The paddle boat has both an upper open deck and a lower enclosed deck. I highly recommend this riverboat experience!

If you like Frank Lloyd Wright architecture, this is a gem! Fully restored and excellent docents who are well trained and love their "work."

White Flame Brewing Company

Reviewed By Pferdina - Grand Rapids, Michigan

We just stopped in to try the beer as we were in the area. It's a smallish place, inside a nondescript pole barn. The one member of staff we met was very friendly and helpful. A lot of the beers were IPAs, which are not our favorites. We tried a flight of five 4 oz pours in order to try several. We liked the oatmeal and the red ale best, the Scottish ale was fine too. We thought Red Shoes was the first beer flavored with chilies that actually had Chile taste. It was interesting. As we didn't try any food, I can't comment on that.

Frog Hollow Boundless Playground

Reviewed By gday2uWMI - Grandville, Michigan

This is a small, unique, nice tiny play area behind Metro Hospital. Adorable frog theme. It has a very small but practical play area, some covered tables and is usually very well-maintained. Very nice getaway for family of patients at the hospital with small kids who need a little space. Is also down the street from the Wyoming MI Veteran Outpatient Clinic and other clinics. I often see a mom or dad playing with kids here while the other parent, friend or family visits a clinic or hospital. In front of the hospital are pretty fountains and ponds that children may also like to check out with a parent or guardian. It is near many fast food establishments, so bring a lunch. Despite all the activity in the area, this remains an off-the-path retreat across the street from wetlands on one side and trees on another. In fact, the wetlands are known to attract some spectular birds like heron, eagles, snow owles and many small songbirds. Sometimes, no one else is there; other times, it is full. You can clearly see the most spectacular sunsets from this location. Nice little retreat. Gezon Park is down the street from this by the large water tower, if the family wants a larger area to explore.

Vander Veen's Dutch Store

Reviewed By flintjarvis - Flint, mi

A "must stop" if you are in the area and are craving Dutch goodies.

If it is made in Holland, you can probably find it here. They have many varieties of foods and treats.

Be sure to check out the genuine wooden shoes and the fun, soft, slipper and garden versions of the classic shoes.

I like the windmill cookies and they have them here.

The prices are reasonable and the service is friendly.
