Located on the Grand River which feeds into Lake Michigan, Grand Rapids is a charming city which offers something for everyone. Whether you prefer to spend your holiday visiting the many sights within the city, exploring the picturesque wilderness in the area, or perhaps both, a visit here gives you plenty of options for things to see and do, and touring here with a rental car will make things easy and hassle-free. Auto Europe offers several car hire pick up locations in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and a large fleet selection, so finding a car rental in Grand Rapids is both easy and economical.
The Grand Rapids area has been inhabited for hundreds of years, and the history of local people is both interesting and exciting. To find out how it all began and how things have evolved over the years, drive your rental car to the Public Museum of Grand Rapids, located downtown on the west bank of the river. Here you will see displays showing the history of life in the region including recreated street scenes from the 1900s.
Just north of the museum, you can visit another great attraction for history buffs, the Gerald Form Presidential Museum. Complete with a replica of the oval office and a number of great interactive displays, this museum shows life as a president in the 1970s.
Across the river on the east side of the city is a fantastic attraction which definitely should not be missed. Drive your hire car towards Cornerstone University, next to which you'll find the Frederick Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park. Here you'll see both indoor and outdoor gardens containing plants from around the world, combined with a collection of over 170 sculptures from many different artists.
To escape the city and truly enjoy the great outdoors that the area has to offer, jump in your rental car and drive north of Grand Rapids, where just outside the city on the west bank of the river you'll find White Pine Trail State Park. A stretch of protected wilderness stretching over 150km, this is a popular place for hiking, cycling, skating as well as skiing and snowboarding during winter.
