Every summer, my Dad and three of his brothers get together for a trip. Regardless of the destination, my Uncle Bob wants to drive his RV there. As he himself will explain, RV does not stand for Recreational Vehicle as you might assume. The R in this case is for Ridiculous. It’s big and old and gets about 4 MPG.
This year, they are planning on heading to Taliesin, a Frank Lloyd Wright house near Madison, Wisconsin. I don’t know why though; they could save about $1000 in gas by driving the RV to Grand Rapids instead and visiting the Meyer May House. It’s a Frank Lloyd Wright house that is currently owned by Steelcase. Although they use it for private parties, there are also free tours. I have been twice, and was impressed both times. I mostly came away wishing that Steelcase would invite me to a party there.
The tours are offered Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10AM-2PM, and Sundays from 1PM-5PM. Call (616) 246-4821 for more information. This is really not a great place for kids, or strollers so I recommend it as an adult activity. It’s nice, and quiet, and you’ll leave there having learned a lot. There is no RV parking though, so you may have to make other arrangements if that is your ride.
