Not traveling for spring break this year? Many people don’t travel for spring break, and that’s OK! Grand Rapids is full of fun activities and adventures to enjoy while on spring break! Use our guide to make some memories with your kids and have a good time during your staycation!

  1. Go to a baseball game! The Whitecaps season opens on April 6! Just in time for spring break! Tons of opening night fun with trucker hat giveaways, Dixieland band, all-you-can-eat BBQ, and post-game fireworks! Great way to get out of the house and experience the quintessential American sport.

  2. Ride on the Sand Dunes! Okay, this one takes a little travel, but we promise it’s worth it! The Silver Lake Sand Dunes annually opens on April 1, making it the perfect adventure activity to experience! Rent a dune buggy or bring your own ORV vehicle and rip around one of the few places in Michigan you can drive on sand dunes. It’s one of those experiences unique to West Michigan.

  3. Explore Museums and Zoos! Sometimes it’s more fun to go to a museum or zoo when you aren’t on a field trip! West Michigan is home to some high-quality museums and zoos that will fill kids with wonder! Some of our favorites include The Grand Rapids Children’s Museum, the Air Zoo in Portage, John Ball Zoo, Boulder Ridge Zoo, and The Grand Rapids Public Museum.

  4. Try Something New! Experience some new or different activities during your staycation! Grand Rapids offers hundreds of opportunities to expand your experiences!
