GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV)- West Michigan, soon we’ll be sliding our way into summer! We’re nearly 10 days away, but clearly, we don’t have to wait until the official kick-off to start enjoying the festivities of the season. Right now, you can head outdoors and take advantage of the warm weather or hop in the car and visit any one of Michigan’s attractions. 

Rachael Ruiz knows how to savor the season, and she’s planning ahead! Between coordinating adventurous trips with her girls, whipping up delicious summer recipes in the kitchen, or jamming along to the ultimate summer music playlist, Ruiz is ready to ring in the season! 

Get in the summer spirit by tuning in to this week’s episode of eightWest backstage.
