Westside Connection Reviews

All Categories
The Grand Rapids area has been constantly growing. The atmosphere of the area is always great and there is little to no crime. There are many opportunities in the downtown Grand Rapids area which features the largest ArtPrize. The most interesting and important opportunity to me is the "Medical Mile" because I am pursuing a career in the health field. I would live here all over again if I had the choice to stay or move.
