According to a new Forbes magazine (unlike the RelocateAmerica article from last August that got all the attention a couple of weeks ago) Grand Rapids is the "Best place to raise a family"! Yay us! Grand Rapids not only is a great place to live, but we keep getting all these public accolades!

In the article "The Best Cities For Raising A Family" Tom Van Riper writes

"The relative strength of Grand Rapids’ housing market is enough to push it past the next two cities on our list, Boise, Idaho and Provo, Utah, both of which are particularly noted for low crime and high school quality. Not to mention the chance to mix urban and outdoor lifestyles."

Well, well, well. Our affordable housing, low cost of living and good schools make Grand Rapids quite the envy! It is hard to appreciate the area when we are here everyday, but it's nice to know others want to be here!
