This summer, teens at the Grand Rapids Civic Theatre are taking the lead in putting on two very different, but equally challenging productions.
An interactive exhibit at the Lakeshore Museum Center in Muskegon is highlighting all the parts of a theater that make a production happen, especially the “backstage” roles like lighting, costuming and set design.
Women’s suffrage superstar Susan B. Anthony famously called the bicycle a “freedom machine,” an “emancipator,” and “the all powerful whirligig of the future.”
OK, maybe not that last part, but don’t discredit the bike’s magic — it takes us to and fro with nothing but a pair of legs and the will to zoom. It so happens that we’re blessed with a string of breweries to zoom between along Grand Rapids’ White Pine Trail. Revue plotted some coordinates and dropped in on breweries that share a passion for good beer and a good ride.
If you haven’t visited downtown Holland in a while, you’ll want to stop by on the way to your next beach adventure. The quaint small town is still as delicate as you remember it, but with a new edge. Developments have lengthened 8th Street past River Avenue — all the way down to the recently renovated Civic Center — and its additions include multiple restaurants, a movie theater and The Cakabakery, a custom order and retail bake shop.
Not all animals are meant to be kept in your home — there’s a reason why an “elephant in the room” isn’t considered a good thing. Luckily, zoos take in those animals that are in need or in danger of extinction and allow us to get a look without having to find room for a giraffe in the backyard. West Michigan has plenty of zoos, sanctuaries and animal parks to check out, you just have to know where to look.
Downtown Grand Rapids is making space for pups to run, play and socialize.
Paint, drink, eat, play games, do yoga and more, all with four-legged friends around you.
Buying a new toy, leash or dog sweater is a treat for owner and pet alike.
The best pet shops make spoiling your furry friends fun, with a welcoming atmosphere and unique, locally made choices. Luckily, no matter where you live in West Michigan, we’ve got you covered.
Dating can often get in the way of relationships with the ones who have always been there for you, loving you unconditionally. We’re talking about Fido, of course, the beloved doggo who is always excited to see you (even if you just saw them five minutes ago). Don’t leave your fur baby lounging on the couch all day with pent-up energy while you browse through Bumble for the sixth time. Grab that leash, pack a bag of treats and hit the ground running for a full day of dog-friendly adventure in Grand Rapids, or wherever you live!
