Although Grand Rapids has been called “Furniture City” and most recently, “Beer City”, there’s a few of us locals who call it: “Gravity Rapids”. Why? Because this area attracts newcomers, draws back former residents, and keeps locals from ever wanting to leave – for good reason.
Grand Rapids is on “Best ” lists everywhere. For its livability, diverse economy and fast growth. For its college, culinary and micro-brewery scenes. For its four-season outdoor recreation, big time entertainment and renown cultural arts.
It’s a place where you’re ten minutes to anywhere in town, and thirty minutes to sugar sand beaches at one of the largest fresh water lakes in the world (it looks like an ocean and it’ll take longer if you bike there – which you can on some of the hundreds of miles of paved trails).
Whether you’re moving here for the first time, moving back, or staying and moving across town, I can help.
