3 Things to Do in Grand Rapids, MI During Your Next Home Cleaning

Getting your house cleaned? Wonderful! Take advantage of your new-found free time and do something that brings you joy… like indulging yourself (and your children!) in fun, relaxing, and rejuvenating activities. Wondering what to do in Grand Rapids? Consider these three activities: 

#1 Chill Out in a Float Tank

In just one hour, you’ll experience the ultimate in serenity! A truly unique experience, a float tank relaxes you through buoyancy and water immersion, leaving you rejuvenated and refreshed.  

Never been in a float tank? Worried about claustrophobia? This writer (the quintessential claustrophobe) had no problems with the small space, about the size of a twin mattress.  And there’s no need to even shut the tank lid if you prefer a more open environment. 

The completely weightless feeling of floating works wonders for both physical and mental health. Floating transports you into an incredibly deep, dream-like state which is perfect if you experience stress, anxiety, depression, PTSD, or other mental health issues. People also use floating to treat physical conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, injury recovery, or any other chronic pain issues. 

Phlot in Grand Rapids, MI offers individual float sessions for $70 per hour. We know you’ll love how you will feel afterward… especially when you go home to a perfectly clean house!

Located at 1555 Wealthy Street SE, Grand Rapids, MI, Phlot is a popular destination. You’ll want to book your spot 10 to 14 days in advance online at https://phlotgr.com  or by calling 616-551-3837. Closed on Tuesdays, Phlot is open from 9 AM to 9 PM Monday through Saturday and from 9 AM to 5 PM on Sunday.

Treat yourself to lunch before or after your float at the Gaia House Café. You don’t have to be a vegetarian to enjoy their delectable food, and their juice and coffee lounge.

#2 Check out the Stars at Chafee Planetarium

Visiting a planetarium is not something we do every day. But indulging yourself in the cosmos may be just the thing to do while your home is being cleaned.

Relax and recline to experience the incredible forces of our universe as you visit the galaxy, constellations, far away planets, and much more! All of the Chaffee Planetarium shows feature the latest Digistar projection technology and immersive surround sound for an unbelievably rich and realistic experience. 

Located within the Grand Rapids Public Museum, the Chaffee Planetarium is named after the Grand Rapids-born astronaut, Roger B. Chaffee, who lost his life in the 1967 Apollo 1 spacecraft fire. The planetarium is open 9 AM to 5 PM during the week and 10 AM to 5 PM on weekends.
