Travel Tips for Grand Rapids

GVSU III

by just4funds

The latest addition to GVSU's presence in downtown Grand Rapids is the opening of the Center for Health Sciences. GVSU has strong Nursing and Physical Therapy programs, yet they were in cramped quarters on the main campus in Allendale, MI. The move to CHS was necessary, but will be beneficial as well due to it's location near Spectrum Health's Butterworth Hospital complex in addition to the VanAndel Institute medical research facility.

Fallasburg Park Covered Bridge

by just4funds

One of only two covered bridges in Kent County is located at Fallasburg Park. This park is also the site of the Fallasburg Fall Festival. This juried arts and crafts festival is sponsored by the Lowell Area Arts Council and is held every year during the last weekend in September.

Park activities and facilities include: baseball diamonds, fishing, hiking, nature trails, an open shelterhouse, picnicing, playgrounds, an enclosed shelterhouse, and restrooms.

To get there, head North on Lincoln Lake Road out of Lowell about 5 miles to Fallasburg Park Drive (on the East side Lincoln Lake Road.) Follow Fallasburg Park Drive until you reach Covered Bridge Road on the right.

Here's the skinny....

"About the city..."

Grand Rapids is Michigan's second largest city, with a population of just over 200,000. The area is home to many companies, including the Big 3. (I'm not talking cars here, but rather office furniture. Steelcase, Haworth and Herman-Miller are all headquartered within 35 minutes of downtown Grand Rapids.) In the early years, Grand Rapids was known for the lumber and furniture industries.

Situated on the banks of the Grand River less than 45 minutes from the Lake Michigan shore, Grand Rapids enjoys moderate weather. The big lake helps keep the area cool in the summer, as well as warm in the winter, however the downfall is that in the early winter it also becomes proficient at producing large amounts of snow.

Grand Rapids is also centrally located, with Chicago, Detroit and the splendor of Northern Michigan all within 3 hours by car.

"About the weather...."

SEE THE WEATHERBALL
For the meteorologically challenged person who can't tell the local weather by looking at the sky, or going outside, a local TV station has given new life to the Weatherball. The Weatherball previously sat proudly atop the Mackay Tower in downtown Grand Rapids until it was discovered that the weight, etc. was putting too much stress on the building and was taken down in 1987. The parts were purchased from a salvage yard and after being refurbished and re-fitted with neon tubes the weatherball was brought back to life in early 2003.

How do you read the weatherball?
Weatherball RED, warmer ahead
Weatherball BLUE, cooler in view
Weatherball GREEN, no change foreseen
Colors blinking bright, rain or snow in sight.


Here's the current weather where I live:
