Grand Rapids is a patchwork of historic, ethnic, residential, rowdy, quiet, cool and cultural neighborhoods. Recently, our neighborhoods are evolving into hubs for young, creative, inspirational individuals squeezed out of Detroit and Chicago by rising rents. That’s good for us, because these fresh faces bring fresh ideas that add to our already incredible neighborhoods by inspiring new restaurants, start-up businesses, boutique hotels, breweries, cocktail bars and clubs that make our city even sweeter.
