Amazing Places: Frederik Meijer Gardens.
Ever since I saw how Grand Rapids, MI responded to a Newsweek snub by making the famous The Grand Rapids LipDub video, I wanted to visit that city. So I managed to talk my frequent vacation buddies, Patti and Gerry Congleton from Trip News 45: Patti And Gerry Are Seriously Fun. into joining me. While the city itself was truly impressive, what was really mind blowing was the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park.
I think the website does a great job of describing it's wonder, grandeur and relevance. "It’s not just the masterpieces of art and nature that delight your senses. Or the surprising silhouettes and endless kaleidoscope of colors and textures that inspire you most. It’s the one, brief, shining moment of clarity about what matters most to you that will bring you back time after time." So if you find yourself in need of a place that has a great sense of humor, a loyal community, wonderful shops and restaurants, natural beauty, robust economy, and an enchanting garden, they come no grander than Grand Rapids.
