I thought I'd add this too
Things I love about GR:
Fredrick Meijer gardens- get an annual pass and go all the time
The public museum
The library system is fantastic!
The park system is great
Millennium Park (this one is worth mentioning all by itself)
Downtown festivals and music
The fish ladder
Pocket neighborhood flair
The fact that it is big, but small at the same time - It has everything you need, but isn't huge like Chicago
The fact that you can be in the middle of GR and drive for less than 10 minutes in any direction and hit farmland!
Berry picking at a farm less than 10 minutes away
Family owned farms and organic produce less than 10 minutes away
In the fall - going to one of the many many pumpkin and or apple farms for a hayride and a carmel apple
In the winter - Iceskating downtown at Rosa Parks circle for free, sledding at almost any park in GR
If you are into sports - Griffins games and Whitecaps games
The Blandford Nature center, Mixed Greens organization
Lake Michigan beaches
This is a link to that natural baby store in Easthills. They also have links for local natural groups http://www.hopscotchstore.com/
I have lived in many many places in the US (military brat) and GR is really starting to grow on me....other than the snow. I hate snow!
