About Grand Rapids
About West Michigan

Located on the banks of the Grand River, Grand Rapids is Michigan’s second largest city and offers world-class experiences with a small-town, friendly vibe.  We host the professional minor league teams for the Detroit Tigers, Red Wings, and Pistons and receive top touring music acts and theater.  Grand Rapids is the home of a nationally recognized symphony and hosts the state's only professional ballet company.

West Michigan is diverse, vibrant, and fun!  We are less than 30 minutes to the beautiful beaches of Lake Michigan, and the area offers many cultural, entertainment, and recreational opportunities.
