I first visited Grand Rapids in November of 2001, a couple of months after my sister moved there. I've since visited several more times, including for her wedding (they DARED to have it the day after my birthday!) and most recently shortly after the birth of my baby niece Maya.

Grand Rapids is a nice city - it's clean and people are pretty open and friendly. Despite its size (about 200,000 people) it's a fairly quiet place. The downtown area is pretty compact, considering how spread out the city itself is, and mostly commercial in nature. Grand Rapids may not be a busy and bustling place like a bigger city would, but it nevertheless still seems to be a nice place to live.

    You sum up my former hometown well on your page. I guess it is a nice place to live, if you like that kind of place. It was a bit too small for me!
