Unique GR Staycation

Real Estate Agent with The Blehm Group

Whether you've lived your entire life in Grand Rapids and have just moved from one side of town to the other, or you are new to the area, GR is rich with unique weekend getaways and staycations depending where you look. 

The Local Epicurean, described as Wild Food for Urban People, is a local and artisanal specialty food store located in Eastown offering 100% small batch pastas using local Michigan products. They use century old traditions featuring herbs, vegetables, and flowers to create some of the most delicious pastas we've ever tried. 

Pumpkin & Chipotle Chili, Black Walnut & Cranberry, and Smoked Blue Cheese & Black Walnut pastas are just some of the varieties you can find on shelves around GR at places like Whole Foods, Harvest Health, Horrocks, and Kingma's. They've even ventured as far as The Cheese Lady in Muskegon, Sawall Health Foods in Kalamazoo, Mert's Market in Lansing, and Edson Farms in Traverse City. 

For a truly unique weekend getaway, consider the Food Lovers Weekend in West Michigan through The DoubleTree by Hilton Grand Rapids Airport. Your weekend will begin with a culinary adventure on Saturday evening as The Local Epicurean teaches you how to make your very own pasta using their tried and true method. You will then eat your creation as part of a four course meal. If you aren't too stuffed, you can either dance the night away downtown or enjoy a low-key night in relaxing at the hotel. 

The price of the getaway is $269.00 per couple made directly through the Local Epicurean at www.thelocalepicurean.com.
