ROADSIDE MICHIGAN: Meijer Gardens, Grand Rapids
What can I say about Meijer Gardens...except if you've never visited, what are you waiting for?
It's one of the 100 most-visited museums in the entire country...and well-deserved.
Sculptures, artwork, nature, flora & fauna, artifacts, labyrinth, amphitheater, historic buildings, cafe/restaurant...it's all here. It's a wonderful place for everyone in the family and you can spend hours & hours here and not be bored. Even the hardest-to-please kid in the family will enjoy Meijer Gardens.
There simply is no reason why you can't visit, regardless of the time of year. The only days the gardens are closed are Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year's Day.
