For anyone looking for the quintessential all-American living experience, Grand Rapids, Minnesota is the place you're looking for. I have been living in Grand Rapids for over a decade and it is without a doubt one of the best areas in the state if not in the entire country. The people are what make the place, and the people of Grand Rapids are the best you will find anywhere. A community that comes together to welcome anyone, to help anyone, and to celebrate everyone. A community that takes pride in its neighborhoods and its city. We even have a low crime rate here in Grand Rapids. How's that for impressive? I honestly don't think I could be happier living anywhere else.
Grand Rapids also has some interesting attractions and fun things to do. The birthplace of Miss Judy Garland is here in Grand Rapids. We also have the Children's Discovery Museum, PaddleHoppers rafting and kayaking, the Forest History Center Museum, and a really great Grand Rapids Farmers Market. There are also a number of great local boutiques, shops, and restaurants to enjoy.
