Familiarly known as the "Furniture City," in recognition of its 19th-century beginnings as a furniture manufacturing center, Grand Rapids is Michigan's second-largest city. Home to a handful of colleges and universities, there is a growing population of young professionals who enjoy eclectic neighborhoods and cutting-edge restaurants. The Gerald R. Ford Museum honors our nation's 38th president and onetime Grand Rapids resident. Contemporary-art exhibits at the new home of the Grand Rapids Art Museum—dubbed GRAM, for short—enhance a permanent collection that includes works by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Richard Diebenkorn. Honoring its furniture-making past, companies like Herman Miller still thrive in the region, employing thousands of people and shipping products worldwide.
