Let's Get Our Summer On!!
As West Michigan is starting to wear summer on it’s sleeve, a ton of fun activities are calling your name!! We’ve included activities, things to do, and businesses that will make the summer season fantastic!
Cannonsburg Zipline and Trails
Open in the summer
Cannonsburg is known for skiing in the winter but what most people don’t normally think of when hearing about it is their zipline adventure and trails in the summer. You can also watch some pretty phenomenal sunsets and sunrises from the top of the hill and it sure is breathtaking!
West Michigan Whitecaps Baseball Games
In Comstock Park you’ll find Grand Rapids’ very own baseball team, the Whitecaps. The West Michigan Whitecaps makes going to a baseball game as fun as it can be with all the extra events, themed days, and mascots! This is the perfect thing to do with your family on a nice spring day.
John Ball Zoo
With kids being off of school in the summer, there is a lot of time to enjoy the warm weather in Grand Rapids and going to the zoo is one of the many ways you can do just that. John Ball Zoo is great at what they do and not only do they have great animal exhibits, but they also offer a variety of fun programs and events throughout the summer!
