Grand Rapids is a major city on the south western end of Michigan. It is home to President Ford Museum and his bury place. It is a stepping off point to the western side of the Michigan and Great Lakes Michigan. You can spend 2 to 3 days exploring what this city has to offer. Disability access and disability parking will depend on what activities you choose.
