I love Grand Rapids! There are many great neighborhoods. There are a lot of local businesses/shops/restaurants. Great atmosphere and an awesome downtown area. Close to parks too. Within driving distance of lake Michigan.

You definitely see police going around patrolling certain areas, though around some areas need more attention.
This is a place that is growing and thriving. It has become a place that is a warm welcoming to all, and a place that you see creativity in events, art, buildings, etc..
