Weekend Getaway // Grand Rapids

in , by Lavender Elizabeth, October 12, 2018
Last weekend, a group of friends and I went on a fun getaway to Grand Rapids, Michigan. Every other year, Grand Rapids hosts an international art show called ArtPrize, where artists showcase their work throughout the city. It's such a cool concept! It was basically a walking museum tour filled with unique paintings, sculptures, and interactive art. We spent the weekend exploring the art, tasting wine, and trying new restaurants. 

Our full girls' weekend recap is below!

  1. Lunch: We went to Stella's Lounge, a dive restaurant with famous burgers.
  2. ArtPrize: We explored downtown Grand Rapids, finding all kinds of cool art along the way. 
  3. Dinner: We ate at Grand Rapids Brewing Co., a new brewery downtown. It was seriously delicious.
  4. Evening: Going out downtown was so fun. We started at J. Gardella's Tavern and watched people attempt karaoke; and ended at BackForty, where there was a live band and cheap drinks.
  5. Drunchies: Befor heading back to the hotel, we went to HopCat for some late night snacks.

  1. Orchard: It was the perfect fall day, so we went to the apple orchard! Hot cider, donuts, and wine tasting - the perfect morning at Robinettes.
  2. Winery: To break up our drive home, we stopped at Gravity Wines. We tried four wines and enjoyed the beautiful view.

I'm already looking forward to our next girls' getaway!
