Spring Break is a great opportunity for families in the greater Grand Rapids area to take a break and make some lasting memories together after a long Michigan winter. With this year being particularly harsh, even families who weren’t planning on leaving to a warmer, tropical location still wanting to enjoy their time off and have some adventures together. If you’re one of those looking for some local fun with the family, here are some great staycation ideas for families in West Michigan!
For the bold, seeking maximum adventure, a fun option for the brave at heart is TreeRunner Grand Rapids which touts itself as a premier aerial adventure park in West Michigan. Here you and your family or friends can scale to great heights and traverse the treetops over seven obstacle courses varying in difficulty, heights and lengths. With over 60 obstacles and zip lines offering beginner, intermediate and expert courses, and the ability to accommodate ages as young as 4 years old, this venue offers a thrilling experience without needing any previous knowledge or particular skill set.
Looking for something completely different? Try a scavenger hunt with Let’s Roam Scavenger Hunt! With this app led outdoor scavenger hunt, you can explore Grand Rapids while searching for plaques, statues and art to solve riddles to try and complete the hunt, maybe even beating the best time in Grand Rapids! In addition, your family will need to complete photo challenges and answer trivia questions while even gaining extra points for finding hidden treasures. During the two allotted hours, you can race to the finish line in a quest to beat the best time or take your time by pausing the app to spend more time at different locations. This adventure has possibilities for family members as young as 5 years old and different roles for each member to ensure everyone gets to take part in the fun.
The butterfly exhibit is an annual exhibition at Fredrick Meijer Gardens that is sure to delight the child in you while igniting a fire for learning in your child. As the largest temporary tropical butterfly exhibit in the nation, over 60 species of butterflies from Asia, Africa, and Central & South America, will take flight in the warm, lush environment of the Lena Meijer Tropical Conservatory. With special educational programming throughout the exhibit, you can learn how color, light and shadow affect butterfly behavior and how they flourish in their natural environment. New this year, extended hours during Spring Break… the Meijer Gardens will stay open from 9am-9pm during the week.
The Kroc Center provides families the opportunity to burn off some steam and energy regardless of what the weather is doing outside! Offering an indoor swimming pool, climbing wall, gym, game room and family room, there’s plenty to do while you and your family are there. Take advantage of their extended Spring Break hours to get even more enjoyment out of your day and for those that would like to enjoy it year round without committing fully, check out their family pool and play pass which offers a yearlong pass for weekends that includes Spring Break and Christmas.
They say the family that plays together stays together but what if you didn’t have an option to escape? Better yet, what if you had to earn your right to escape with an escape room? Recommended for ages 10 and up, escape rooms provide a physical adventure game contained in a room or series of rooms in which players solve puzzles and riddles while looking for clues, hints, and strategies to complete the objectives at hand and in turn, find the key or code to get out of the room in the hour allotted timeframe. Themed rooms create an ambiance in which the story unfolds and the variety of problems allow different members the opportunity to solve a piece of the puzzle pie. Escape rooms are a great way to test your critical thinking in a fun, family-friendly group dynamic.
