We all know that Grand Rapids is a great place to live, work, and visit. But…have you truly experienced it all?!
With so much to offer, we figured a collection of experiences around our city would intrigue even the most long-standing GR residents. In the See, Do, & Dine GR package, you get to sample the best things about our city.
Take in the beauty of our Arts and Cultural district with two tickets to the award-winning Grand Rapids Symphony and Opera Grand Rapids. To begin your elegant evening, how about a Botanical Therapy session and Style at Coiffeteria Salon followed by a delicious dinner at the University Club conveniently located across the street from the performance hall. After the performance, snuggle in for a relaxed one-night stay at the Homewood Suites in Downtown Grand Rapids.
Of course, you cannot experience Grand Rapids without eating your heart out! Sample your way through beer, wine, cheese, and even ice cream from some of GR's most popular hotspots include Brewery Vivant, Love's Ice Cream, Martha's Vineyard, and The Cheese Lady.
Still not enough? How about enjoying some family fun with tickets for four at GR's amazing Watermark Country Club for a round of golf, discovering new things at the Grand Rapids Public Museum, and then a family adventure to the fun and educational John Ball Zoo.
Over $1,000 in value!!

LANDSCAPE PAINTING BY HAILEY HARROLD 24"x30"
From Janet (Grammy) Harrold:
Initially I had a hard time thinking about the subject, but I knew I wanted Hailey to take a large part in deciding what we should paint. I told her I thought a landscape would be best and that it should be abstract art. I asked her to write down some things that we should include in our painting, and she wrote down "tree's, a walking path and a sunset." I outlined a loose landscape on canvas.
My original thought was that this is going to be a huge mess!! I could just see paint flying everywhere, but honestly, Hailey was into it. She tried very hard to keep her movements under control and she did well. We mixed some colors, and I gave her a brush and advised her where to start painting. After working for a long time, she became tired, so I helped her to stay steadier by guiding her hand and cleaning up lines and adding the trees. She was finally seeing it come together after hours of hard work. I could tell that she was proud of her accomplishment.
Every piece of work that I have painted since Hailey was born has a green cerebral palsy ribbon discreetly placed somewhere in the painting. I asked her if she also wanted to include one and she did. I wanted her to sign it solo but she insisted both of our names be on it as we worked on it together.
This painting collaboration is special to me as it is the first serious piece of art that we worked on together and it is priceless.
