Over Memorial weekend I traveled to Grand Rapids,Michigan,to check out the local breweries and barcades. Grand Rapids is an inviting city with a fun and hip feel without being over the top like some big cities can be. I had a great time. I loved that so many restaurants had lots of veg food on the menu, and of course, the beer! Yum. The weather was warm and sunny, perfect for walking around the city and exploring. One the way home we also made a stop in Holland, Michigan, which is only a half an hour drive from Grand Rapids. I wanted to go to the beach and stick my feet in Lake Michigan. Despite the water temperature being only 45 degrees,there were even people swimming! After the past long, and very cold winter, you can’t keep Michiganders out of the lake. Enjoy some of my shots form the trip.All photographed with a Canon 20D.
