Downtown Grand Rapids from the 28th floor

It sure it good to be loved, isn't it?

Grand Rapids has been on a lot of great "Top 10" lists lately and has been No. 1 on several, like the Forbes Top Cities for Raising A Family.

Now, another one! This is from LonelyPlanet.com. 

Each year, LonelyPlanet covers some "must-see" cities and regions. During their research, they went a little further and created a list of "top 10 places in the U.S. that should be" on the radar of travelers in 2014.

Grand Rapids and West Michigan were No. 1!

Here's an excerpt from Lonely Planet's article:

"... Hops aside, the secret about Grand Rapids’ fabulous art scene is getting out. In addition to the impressive blooms and Rodin sculptures in the Frederik Meijer Gardens, and the excellent Grand Rapids Art Museum housed in a cool LEED Gold certified building, Grand Rapids is home to the world’s largest art competition, ArtPrize, in which more than 1,700 creatives display their masterpieces."
