History in a Nutshell

I have lived in Kentwood, Michigan for about 10 years. I moved to the area after I had my daughter because of a job offer. This is one thing that lured me to the city. There are several jobs waiting to be filled in numerous areas. I love the family atmosphere of the city. I can sit on my front porch at night to watch as people walk down the sidewalk. The homes are somewhat older, but there are new apartment buildings going up in the downtown area. Many of the restaurants that are in Kentwood have more sandwiches and hamburgers than they have steaks and the finer meals that you might find in a bigger city. The prices are a little high, but the servings are large, so it's worth the money going out to eat on occasion. There are several shopping malls that I have been to in the city. Most of the stores are the typical retail stores that you would see in any other city. One thing that the area has going for it is the automotive industry. The Gerald Ford Museum has a large display of cars as well as the history of the car industry in the United States. Most of the attractions in the city are historical. It's a lot of museums and older houses that you can tour. My children enjoy learning about science and history, so this is a plus for our family. When summer arrives, it's best to stay inside because it can get very humid, which is something I don't like, and in the winter, you deal with a large amount of snow and ice.
