Moving to Grand Rapids, MI

Located on the Grand River, Grand Rapids, MI is a great place to move to. It has a metro population of more than 774,000 residents, and is the second largest city in Michigan after Detroit. It’s nicknamed the “Furniture City” because it is home to five of the world’s leading office furniture companies. Grand Rapids was also home to the 38th president of the United States, Gerald Ford. There’s much more to Grand Rapids than furniture and presidents, keep reading to learn more!

Here’s what you’ll love about living in Grand Rapids!

Weather. Warm, humid summers, cold and snowy winters, and short, mild springs and autumns make up Grand Rapid’s weather. Thanks to Lake Michigan’s lake effect snow, Grand Rapids gets about 64 inches of snow per year! The average summer high remains in the high 70s to low 80s, while the average winter low remains often below freezing.

Festivals. You don’t want to miss the Celebration on the Grand. It occurs the weekend after Labor Day. You’ll have fun with free concerts, fireworks display, and plenty of food booths. After moving, you’ll have to check out all of the festivals in Grand Rapids.

Recreation. Go the beach, or have some fun street, mountain, or trail biking! If you’re feeling competitive, sign up for a bike race! There are plenty of fun things to do with the family after moving to Grand Rapids, like going to the climbing center, Craig’s Cruisers (go-karts, bumper boats, etc.), or the indoor family water park that includes a three story waterslide! There are also over 1,500 acres of park land around town; the largest park is Aman Park at 331 acres. With all of that great snow comes great snow skiing, so you can get out there and have fun year round.

Culture. Make sure that you don’t miss ArtPrize, the world’s largest art competition that happens right here in Grand Rapids! The art is displayed within three square miles of downtown Grand Rapids, and the public decides the winner! There are plenty of museums in the area, including a children’s museum. Be sure to visit the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum. John Ball Zoo is home to more than 1,100 animals from five continents! There’s even a 4-story, 300 ft. “fly” over the zoo with a zip line!

Education. K-12 public education is provided by the Grand Rapids Public Schools. There are a lot of charter schools, too. Grand Rapids has the oldest co-educational Catholic High School in the United States, so if you’re looking for a private education you have options. For those seeking a degree, Grand Rapids has several college and universities to choose from.
