Experience the creative energy of Grand Rapids: dazzling art and culture, awesome dining and nightlife, inspiring natural beauty and exhilarating community spirit. The very walkable downtown is jam-packed with more than 90 restaurants, clubs, theaters and museums — and every autumn, it hosts 250,000 artists and spectators for ArtPrize, the world’s richest art competition. Food is an art form here, too. A top-notch culinary school and endless agricultural bounty set the table for first-class farm-to-table dining throughout the city, while local craft breweries and coffee shops garner national acclaim.
This cosmopolitan cool is matched by an equally impressive outdoor élan: Grand Rapids offers great golf courses, fishing spots, hiking and biking trails, even downhill skiing. Plus, the city is just minutes away from the sugar-sand beaches of Lake Michigan!
