For anyone who lives here this is no big surprise.  When it comes to places to live, for me, Grand Rapids is a magically, wonderful, city.  We have everything we need here, and not much of what we don't.  MarketWatch/Wall Street Journal Digital Network named Grand Rapids, Michigan as one of the Best Places To Live in the United States. Job growth and cultural attractions were a couple of the factors taken into account.  We not only ranked but we ranked HIGH!  Thanks to Bev Boerman on Facebook who shared this with me.  I LOVE THIS CITY!
