'Postcards from Grand Rapids': Tourism campaign invites friends, family to visit West Michigan

Experience Grand Rapids launches campaign to boost tourism, delivering thousands of free postcards

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Experience Grand Rapids launched Postcards from Grand Rapids Wednesday, a campaign encouraging residents to invite friends and family to visit West Michigan. 

Starting September 2 through October 31, community members can send free, personalized postcards in the mail through Experience Grand Rapids’ website. 

Experience Grand Rapids has partnered with area hotels to offer overnight giveaways. Participants will be eligible to enter to win free overnight hotel accommodations.

"Nearly 50% of travelers who come to the area are visiting friends and family," says Kate Lieto, Director of Marketing for Experience Grand Rapids. "West Michigan continues to be an ideal travel destination, and now we’re calling on locals to invite their loved ones and to help boost our local economy."

If you want to send a free postcard, visit PostcardsFromGR.com and choose one of three designs. Write a personalized message, enter the recipient’s mailing address, and Experience Grand Rapids will handle the printing and postage. 

The postcards come in three designs to highlight some of Kent County’s most popular activities: craft beer, beaches and parks, and tours and experience.
