Living in Grand Rapids
Thinking about relocating to Michigan’s second largest city? Smart choice! Grand Rapids was named one of the very best places to live in the country, according to the 2017 list by U.S. News – and for good reason. A big city with small, Midwestern charm, Grand Rapids boasts a lower cost of living than similarly sized cities and a flourishing job market.
If you’re looking for entertainment, Grand Rapids has you covered. After all, a city nicknamed “Beer City USA” is unlikely to be boring. The city is home to a variety of craft breweries, as well as cideries and distilleries. If happy hour isn’t your thing, there’s plenty else to see. Visit the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, an attraction named by TripAdvisor as one of the world’s Top 30 “must-see museums.” Catch one of your favorite musical artists at one of Grand Rapid’s many concert venues, or get your sports fix cheering on the West Michigan Whitecaps, the Grand Rapids Griffins, or the Grand Rapids Drive.
Are you a foodie? Bon appétit! Grand Rapids has a thriving culinary scene thanks to the wide variety of fruits and veggies grown near Lake Michigan. Whether you’re hungry for excellent food or plentiful opportunities, Grand Rapids might just be the perfect place to rent your next apartment.
