Many of us (all of us) who post on this blog share one thing in common. We all went to college in Grand Rapids Michigan. I personally grew up in West Michigan and have a deep connection to the city and believe that it truly is one of the best mid-sized cities in the country. If nothing else, it was an awesome place to experience college with its vibrant culture, accessible downtown and great (albeit relatively small) night life. I believe that many of the bloggers who post on this web-site would agree with me that Grand Rapids is unique and an incredible place to spend four years of our lives. This short video highlights some of the accolades that Grand Rapids has received over the past couple of years (my favorite being Beer City USA). http://youtu.be/lIakr9wkiKI.
I have also included this short video from one of the largest art competitions in the world which takes place in lowly Grand Rapids. http://vimeo.com/75037384.
Looking for an affordable vacation? Go visit Grand Rapids during the summer which has Lake Michigan and some of the most pristine beaches in the country less that 45 minutes away.
