Grand Rapids continues to be a driving innovative, creative and economic force in Michigan. In fact, there’s so much happening that you’d almost have to live there to keep up. Not a bad idea!

Speaking of great places to visit, if you get a chance, spend some time in Grand Rapids. Like I said before, you just might end up living there. Oh, and if you do, be sure to stop by Founders, because that’s probably where we’ll be.
