Grand Rapids

Grand Rapids, are your ears buzzing? Because everyone’s talking about you…

Here in Michigan, we recognize the Grand Rapids area as a thriving community with great job opportunities, rich cultural offerings, and top schools. Recently Coldwell Banker analyzed data for over 11,000 suburbs across the nation. East Grand Rapids ranked among the Top 10 Best Places to Live for Suburbanites.

But we’re not the only ones talking about all GR has to offer:

In April 2004, Grand Rapids was named as one of America's Most Livable Communities by the Partners for Livable Communities.

It was also ranked fifth-healthiest town for men by Men's Health Magazine from among 101 cities surveyed (October 2002). As a matter of fact, one of the city’s most popular fitness events, the 25K Fifth Third Riverbank Run, happens each May and attracts 10,000 participants from all over the globe.

Another reason people here are so healthy could be Grand Rapids’ “Medical Mile.” This designated area of downtown is home to several hospitals and premier specialty health centers such as Butterworth Hospital, Van Adel Institute, Meijer Heart Center, Helen Devos Children’s Hospital, and the Lemmon-Holton Cancer Pavilion.

Grand Rapids sits on the far west side of “The Mitten” and is the hometown of former President Gerald R. Ford. Speaking of President Ford, The Gerald R. Ford International Airport, located here, is the second largest airport in Michigan and serves more than 2 million travelers annually.

Grand Rapids is home to beautiful neighborhoods such as downtown’s Heritage Hills Historic District, which is noted for featuring 60 different architectural styles.

Residents enjoy boating and swimming in nearby Lake Michigan. And if you’re looking for an ever bigger city experience…Chicago is only 3 hours Southwest.

There are 28 public golf courses with many only fifteen minutes from downtown making it one of the top cities in the U.S. for public golf courses-to-population ratio.

Shoppers will find endless places to browse like Breton Village Shopping Center, Woodland Mall, the Wolverine Company Store, Shuler Books, Groskopfs, Lia Rose, and Off the Cuff.

 

Grand Rapids is noted for having a commitment to the arts. The Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park  has the Midwest's most comprehensive sculpture collection. Also worth visiting are the many art galleries including Forest Hills Fine Arts Center, City Art Gallery and the Calvin College Gallery.

Dubbed as the “World’s Largest Art Competition,” Art Prize is an international art competition independently organized and open to any artist over the age of 18. The competition is unique not only because of the size of the top prize (a whopping $200,000) but because that prize is judged and awarded by the public.
