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.

One good site to check for Rentals in Grand Rapids area is http://www.trulia.com/for_rent/Grand_Rapids,MI/. It should also be noted that a lot of people working in the center of Grand Rapids rent outside of the center of the city; there are a lot of choices, both high and low-end rentals and homes to purchase. Suburbs and towns nearby include Cascade-Forest hills-Ada-East GR(hi-end), Wyoming-Kentwood-Plainfield area (more inexpensive), Alger Heights-Eastown (more inexpensive), Standale-Walker(more inexpensive), Rockford-Sparta to the north(country area), Byron center-Cutlerville-Wayland-Middleville to the south(country surroundings). All these towns and suburbs are all pleasant and decently maintained to say the least and desirable at best. All have a different flavor. We personally live in the Grandville-Jenison-Hudsonville area SW of downtown and it's well-maintained and borders on country.

To rent an an apartment in Grand Rapids' downtown area is at least 900 dollars if not 1000. You have to take into account that a lot of the places here are income restricted housing, so you cannot rent there unless you make less than <$20K a year. That's how those apartments are rented out for around $600. If you make more than $20K, you're looking at $900 - %1200 a month for an apartment downtown.
