Grand Rapids has a lot to offer. It’s walkable. Safe. Growing. Friendly. There are shops, galleries, bars, restaurants, and plenty of parks and community events year-round. Plus, you’ll live in the same building as the UICA. So you’ll never be at a loss of places to eat out, stretch out, work out, or go out.
A few other bragging points? We have the world’s first LEED certified art museum, a beer bar rated #3 in the world, Michigan's only professional ballet company and only 5 Diamond restaurant. Grand Rapids' Walk Score of 95 means it's lively and easy to get around. And talk about location — close to Lake Michigan and just a quick hop to Chicago or Detroit. Live at the Gallery and you're in the heart of it all.
