Living in Grand Rapids, Michigan

A Powerhouse City, A Powerhouse Community


Grand Rapids certainly has something for everyone. Home to three professional sports teams, one of the largest Art Festivals in the United States and some of the best food and drink in all of Michigan, Grand Rapids will surely keep a long time resident or one night guest entertained.  But more than what’s contained in the city, the nearby surrounding make Grand Rapids even more appealing, with stunning nature and blue coasts only 30 minutes away.

Rich in historical, cultural and economic significance for the entire state, Grand Rapids has been able to build a diverse, growing community that is consistently at the top of the list for Best Places to Raise a Family, Best Places to Own a Home and not to mention, Beer City, USA.

Grand Rapids is larger than most realize. As the second largest city in Michigan, it is home to nearly 200,000 residents. But truly the community feel maintained in the city is both intimate, and varied. While Grand Rapids does have the resources and access of a larger city, it excels in keeping a tight nit feel.  The Devos and Van Andel families have helped build an incredibly strong and vibrant economic background, with several notable employers such as Amway, Spectrum Health, Meijer and Axios. Higher education is also on the forefront of development with over 15 recognized institutions in the area, and more on the way. Grand Rapids has found the perfect balance of respecting the past, while looking ahead to the future.

One of the best aspects of Grand Rapids living is the different neighborhoods that make up the city.  Whether you seek the ease, access and fun of condo living downtown, the traditional feel of East Grand Rapids, the growing Medical Mile area or historic Heritage Hill, there is a unique community for all. East Grand Rapids has been voted one of the Great Places to Raise Your Kids and has many beautiful, meticulously maintained homes and public parks, not to mention Reeds Lake. The Medical Mile is made up of state of the art hospitals and research facilities. Since the multi-billion dollar project began in 1996, it has been known for attracting some of the world’s most renowned professionals. Heritage Hill hands down showcases some of the most character defined and historically significant houses in Grand Rapids. Recently, The Grand Rapids Downtown Market was introduced and brought several new specialty food shops and can be described as a “fresh take on retail.”

So, whether you’re looking for a new area to start a family or a place to settle down, Grand Rapids would love to have you.
