Gazing up.....in Grand Rapids
The Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids is a year-round facility with some awesome Christmas displays, sing-along-trolleys and horse and buggy rides available until January 10th. This 132 acre complex was named in 2009 as one of the the top 30 "Must-See Museums" in the world! The Meijer Corporation donated financial support, the land and their entire collection of sculptures for this magnificent park. There is a large conservatory and indoor as well as outdoor gardens. There are over 170 sculptures including works by Marshall Fredericks, Rodin, Chihuly, Calder, Henry Moore and so many more. But the 300,000 Christmas lights and the international theme and decoration of the trees make it a definite draw for a wintertime destination right now. Put it on your calendar! More info here.
