GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — If you're looking for inspiration to get out for something that's family-friendly and covid-friendly, you'll want to check these out.

Courtney Sheffer is the Marketing Director of the West Michigan Tourist Association, and she joined FOX 17 live to tell us about some fun events to head out to.

LowellArts is launching a new music program, Radisson Plaza Hotel is letting you dine in your room, and River Saint Joe in Buchanan has invented "River Rocks."

The Featured Artist Series kicks off on February 1st on LowellArts' website, and will have an in-depth interview with an artist each month. The first of which is Ryne Clarke of the Ryne Experience.

Customized Dine & Unwind packages are available for you at Radisson Plaza Hotel in Kalamazoo, courtesy of their onsite restaurants. You will get a three course dinner with a "restaurant-like dining setup right in your room."

A similar program is available at The Inn at Harbor Shores in St. Joseph, where you can have a dining party from 3-to-8 guests.

"River Rocks" is a mix of curling and shuffleboard, involving "stones" that need to be thrown down a lane of ice toward a target. You can book a lane for up to 2 hours with up to 4 people. It all takes place at River Saint Joe, which is an organic farmstead brewery.
