As a young woman, I liked the area. Close to downtown and shops, close to freeways, I could walk to downtown if I wanted. I really liked the location.

I do not like living in the city, I need space, but downtown Grand Rapids is very nice.
There is a lot of variety of stores in the area. A lot of family owned and local business which I love. The only thing I dislike about it is that it isn't as accessible. Their hours are not as broad as chain stores.
