#Tom on Nov 21, 2018 :
The apartment rental prices are not this high. You can easily find basic places for $700 or so on the outskirts of GR. Hell, there are even a couple places left where you can get a 2-bedroom for $750.

I had a really nice duplex, totally renovated and looked great 2 bed, for $875 with partial utilities included a couple years ago. Last I heard it was raised to $950, but still a geat deal. It's maybe 2 miles from GR.

The above prices I find too low. And I've lived in Gr Rap for 40 yrs.

Grand Rapids has been named Beer City USA. There are many Micro Breweries. People here eat out very often, and there are more restaurants per mile than almost anywhere in the U.S. Many Steak houses, cultural and ethnic foods.
