It’s Time to Make a Trip to Wyoming’s Historic District, Bowling Alleys and Arcade Centers
Wyoming is a city located within Michigan’s Kent County and is one of the largest and fastest growing cities in West Michigan. Ever since it was incorporated, the city began growing steadily, despite various wars around the city. In the beginning, it was incorporated as the Township of Byron but later split into Wyoming, the name was derived from the fact that many of its early settlers were from Wyoming County in New York. The city further swelled when the city of Grand Rapids was developed and the emergence of furniture factories started pulling in immigrant workers into the area and creating a spillover effect to Wyoming. Unsurprisingly, as the city grew through the decades, the residents enjoyed a very active art and cultural scene. There are more than 20 parks around Wyoming that covers more than 660 acres in total and they offer a wide range of amenities like playground equipment, splash pads, picnic spots, walking and hiking trails; the authorities have also turned abandoned railways into biking paths. Wyoming has one of the largest public library in the region, new Wyoming Public Library, which opened its doors in 2002 and managed by the Kent District Library System; over 70% of the residents of Wyoming have an active card to access the materials at the library and the building is also home to the Wyoming Historical Commission.
On top of having a thriving art scene, Wyoming is also known for its countless historic homes, district and museums. So, when you are in town, be sure to make your way to the beautiful Voigt House Victorian Museum for a quick tour, bring the kids out for a field trip at Grand Rapids Children’s Museum or hang out with your family and friends with a hilarious dinner show at Dr. Grins Comedy Club. Kids love getting physical all the time so, you can organize a trip to The Kidz Gymnastics and Trampoline and let them hop around to their hearts’ content, check out the wonderfully inspiring local productions at Grand Rapids Civic Theater, discover a whole new world of local wildlife with the exhibits at Blandford Nature Center or learn about the countless local species of animals and their habitat at John Ball Zoo instead. And if you are, indeed, looking around for a reliable, professionally-driven charter bus, mini bus, school bus, coach, limo, van or corporate car to ferry your group to and from the abovementioned locations, US Coachways has just the right solution for you.

It is, however, all about getting active and physical at The Kidz Gymnastics and Trampoline area where they get to enjoy anything from taekwondo to tumbling, trampoline to gym classes.

The performances held at Dr. Grins Comedy Club is sure to induce a guffaw or two and there’s also a full bar offering a wide range of drinks. You can also bring the charter bus to check out the nature-inspired paintings and photographs at Grand Rapids Art Museum where there are sometimes classical concerts and special dinners held for schools and religious organizations. Visitors are sure to be enthralled with the educational outreach programs and vintage fashion shows put on by Gerald R. Ford Museum, plays like Les Miserables and A Christmas Story at Grand Rapids Civic Theater, and the long lineup of musicals, dramatic plays and dance performances held at Broadway Grand Rapids.

To make the deal even sweeter, there are sometimes LIVE music playing while you sample your preferred drinks.
- Historical Sites & Landmarks — The Meyer May House was designed and constructed under the watchful eyes of Frank Lloyd Wright in 1909; today, it is a restored house owned by Steelcase and is open for tours as it serves as an example of Wright’s Prairie architecture so, be sure to pop by if you are interested in historic homes. Otherwise, Grand Rapids Public Museum is a treasure trove of historical information related to the region’s history and development. Its exhibits introduces patrons to history, science, geology and history of Michigan’s dinosaur age. The Heritage Hill Historic District is home to a large number of different homes - it ranges from Victorian syle to Colonial style houses and as you walk along the four mile stretch, the style and architecture will bewitch you. You should also make some time for Voigt House Victorian Museum which features the upper-middle class life of the residents during the Victorian era, Le Grande Vitesse which is a prominent artistic structure and landmark in Grand Rapids’ Calder Plaza, or stop by Aquinas College which is an important historic landmark founded by Dominican Sisters of Grand Rapids in 1886.
- Parks & Outdoor Activities — Frog Hollow Boundless Playground is just the right place if you are looking for a nice location to bring your kids out to. It is safe (the playground is fenced up), well-maintained, has soft ground coverings and ample seating and picnic tables for residents and tourists alike. Otherwise, there is the 2 acres worth of family-friendly community park at Palmer Park and Millennium Park for you to consider. Palmer Park’s softball field is often used by local communities and neighboring schools while there is a man-made 6 acre beach, woodlands and hiking trails at Millennium Park. Blandford Nature Center is a non-profit organization that sits on a 140 acre land with wildlife and the region’s woodlands surrounding it; the Wildlife Center and Interpretive Center is a popular destination for field trips or you can go hiking during summer months or cross-country skiing during winter. Other fun outdoor attractions you may consider includes the 100-acre Calvin College Ecosystem Preserve with their unique wildlife, hiking trails, butterfly house and Bunker Interpretive Center and Veldheer Tulip Garden. The latter is reminiscent of a similar tulip garden in Holland and it becomes an enchanting attraction during spring. The soaring windmills, beautiful drawbridges and canals are gorgeous and should not be missed, especially if you are a photography enthusiast or nature lover.
- Zoos & Aquariums — Most would consider John Ball Zoo to be more than just a zoological garden, it is a public education institution as well as a wildlife conservation and preservation organization.
