Grand-Rapids is a small village located in Wood County in northwest Ohio. The population is approximately 1,000 residents. The village is nestled on the banks of the Maumee River and is a restored canal town. Many of the town's buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In recent years, Grand Rapids has become a tourist town with its' streets lined with gift and specialty shops, antique shops and a restored Victorian restaurant. Other attractions include a restored water and steam-powered mill, and rides down the river on a canal boat pulled by horses. Special events in Grand Rapids include Rapids Rally Days in the spring and the Apple Butter Festival in October. The Christmas season is a very festive time in Grand Rapids, with all the beautiful decorations and shops participating in the Open House Celebration. For outdoor recreation, Grand Rapids is popular for biking along the winding, rolling roads the hug the river east of the village. Just west of Grand Rapids is Mary Jane Thurston State Park and Marina, which features a working canal gate, scenic overlook, picnic facilities, campgrounds and a children's playground. Other things to do in the state park include boating, canoeing, and fishing. There are also miles of scenic hiking trails along the old canal towpaths north and south of the village.
