The Country Inn & Suites Grand Rapids East places guests just one block from the world-famous Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, where sculpture, conservation and plant life all play a role in providing guests with a truly extraordinary experience. The garden has a range of exciting attractions, from the internationally acclaimed, outdoor sculpture park to the nature trails and boardwalk. Get a glimpse of exotic plants in the Arid Garden, and catch the inhabitants of the Carnivorous Plant House in action.
While you are lodging in Grand Rapids, set aside an evening to explore the gardens, which stay open until 9 p.m. every Tuesday. Meijer Gardens also features a variety of seasonal attractions! If you love live music, summer is the time to visit as outdoor concerts take center stage. In the winter, the Christmas and Holiday Traditions Around the World exhibit showcases story-book carriage rides, angelic choirs and over 40 decorated trees and traditions. For the spring months of March and April, don't miss the temporary tropical butterfly exhibit, where thousands of butterflies give the room an impressively colorful backdrop.
