My favorite thing about Wyoming is that not only is it close to Grand Rapids, but it also provides me with a more relaxed setting, along with fun restaurants and new shops; it's a perfect balance between the city and the suburbs. It is also close to my school district, which is another bonus. Most places in the city are very safe, even at night, which is great because I enjoy going out with friends. The only complaint I have is sometimes I see litter in ponds or other areas where animals tend to live. I would love it if the city would ensure that these places are kept clean for the wildlife!

Wyoming is such a great place to live! I grew up here, and the surrounding area is so nice. I've never felt unsafe here. The suburbs are typically very nice, and the schools are pretty great! I went to Grandville schools, but have heard good things about Wyoming public schools as well.
Wyoming is on the outskirts of Grand Rapids, everything and everywhere here is nice a safe. Wyoming always hosts many events such as The metro cruise, carnivals, etc. It makes the community close together and you will know everyone who lives in the neighborhood!
