  1. After closing down for some big renovations, the Gerald R. Ford Museum is getting ready to open back up again.

The newly renovated museum has new lighting, display cases, interactive video and touch screens for a more hands-on experience.

While the oval office and cabinet room are staying the same, visitors can now go behind the office and look in from the window.

The Ford Museum is reopening on June 7.


2. While many neighborhood pools open this weekend, you'll have to wait until June 10 for the city of Grand Rapids to open up the public pools and splash pads.

The pools are located at Briggs Park, Martin Luther King Jr. Park, and Richmond park. There are also numerous splash pads scattered around the city.

Adult residents will be charged $2 for open swim and the fee for kids between the age of one and 17 is $1.

Go to the city’s website for complete details.


3. If you don't want to wait for the pools to open, you can head to Portage's Ramona Park just in time for the holiday weekend.

The park is considered a summer destination with its lifeguard swim area at Long Lake, picnic areas, fishing dock, changing rooms and more.

Also this year the city has added rentals of a canoe, kayak and paddle board.

5. Something so rare happened on wheel of fortune Wednesday night and it hasn't happened in more than 10 years.
