Grand Rapids – An Active Lifestyle City

Grand Rapids Is An Active Lifestyle City

74 percent of Americans prioritize experiences over owning products or things, according to a study by Expedia and the Center for Generational Kinetics.

West Michigan fits that demand perfectly. With dozens of festivals, sporting events, and events each year along with a wide variety of outdoor parks and activities, Grand Rapids is becoming a four season active lifestyle city.

Richard App, Retail Retention & Attraction Specialist for the Grand Rapids Chamber, City of Grand Rapids, and Downtown Grand Rapids, Inc. sees this vision and is excited to cultivate the next generation of our city.
