An attraction here in West Michigan has been named the best in the entire country.

The Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park is a place that is surprisingly vast. At least, that was my experience as a first-time visitor last year. Not only are there sculptures but, they have horticultural display gardens from just about every climate, an amphitheater for concerts, and a play area just for kids.

It's one of those experiences that feels well worth the visit. In fact, I didn't even get to see the entire park last time. That's how spacious it is.
