Grand Rapids, Ohio, one of our finest Ohio villages, is nestled along the southern bank of the Maumee River in Wood County just 30 minutes southwest of Toledo. Visitors are able to step back in time and enjoy the natural setting of this restored canal town listed in the Register of Historic Places.
At Providence Metropark, you can ride on a canal boat pulled by mules down the restored Miami & Erie Canal then tour the historic Isaac Ludwig Mill. Other popular recreational activities include fishing, boating, kayaking and shopping.
The second Sunday every October, the Applebutter Festival features historical re-enactments, pioneer demonstrations, crafts, live music and food along the beautiful Maumee River.
Grand Rapids is the perfect place to visit for a day trip. Come see us soon!
