Allendale Charter Township Reviews

I would definitely live here again if I could do it all over, I'm just not sure if I would live here my whole life. This area is great, the people are nice, the location of it is great since it's so close to Lake Michigan, and it has the small town feel while still being close enough to larger cities, like Grand Rapids. However, it is a very conservative and not very diverse town, so while I love living there, I would like to go and experience living somewhere where there is more diversity.
The Grand Rapids area is an impeccable place to live. Grand Rapids, Michigan has a mass amount of amenities, opportunities, and community. Grand Rapids compared to other areas stands higher than most. While just recently voted Beer City, U.S.A., Grand Rapids continues to grow every day. With events like art prize, swing dancing, and many successful restaurants, Grand Rapids births many cultured and vibrant people. At this rate of growth Grand Rapids will expand exponentially. Had given the chance to live any where, there is truly no other city I would want to be from.
Nice community to live in. However, roads do not get plowed promptly even after 3-5 inches have been accumulated.
