Welcome to Grand Rapids, Ohio - A Town For All Seasons
One of our finest Ohio Villages, nestled along the southern bank of the Maumee River just southwest of Toledo, is Grand Rapids. Visitors to Grand Rapids are able to step back in time and enjoy the natural setting of this restored canal town. Shopping takes on a whole new meaning as visitors shop in our restored canal town buildings that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. You may eat, drink and be merry in a restored Victorian restaurant, visit a totally restored water and steam powered mill, or even pretend that you are an 1800's settler as you ride the canal boat pulled by mules down the restored Miami and Erie Canal. Afterwards a picnic on the towpath between the Gilead Sidecut Canal and the Maumee River may just be in order. As Ohio villages go, Grand Rapids is the best!
Our shoppes in the Downtown Proper, all owned and operated by local families, offer an eclectic and fun variety of antiques, apparel, art, books, candy, florals, furnishings, gifts, goodies, home decor, jewelry and more.
After a hard day of shopping, our eateries, all offering their own special flavor, await your dining pleasure. Whether you're in the mood for surf and turf, salad, pizza, across the border, ice cream or a little southwestern pizzaz, our eateries will not leave you hungry.
Your day in Grand Rapids does not need to end after you are done shopping and dining. Be sure to book a stay at The Grand Kerr House, within walking distance of our main street, where you can relax and savor the experience of A Town For All Seasons at The House For All Reasons.
