About Grand Rapids
From the lovely historic district of Heritage Hill to the ultra-modern Van Andel Arena. From the majestic Frederik Meijer Gardens to the state-of-the-art IMAX Theatre at Celebration! Village. From classic, Midwestern-style steaks to eclectic tapas and international specialties. Indeed, Grand Rapids is a study in contrasts, a fascinating example of how a city can embrace tradition yet keep its eye set on tomorrow. An intrepid revitalization program has spurred continued development of the downtown area, with pockets of fabulous restaurants and chic nightspots springing up at a staggering rate - many of them in weathered brick structures whose exposed ductwork and hardwood floors yield a certain 19th century charm. Visit the B.O.B. (the Big Old Building), an old warehouse that's been converted into an enormous dining-nightlife-entertainment complex. Stop by the cozy little suburbs and neighborhoods: Eastown, East Fulton, Gaslight Village, Lowell, and Rockford. You'll quickly see why the Grand Rapids area is becoming Michigan's place to be and see.

Did you know?

Grand Rapids traces its history back to the 1820s, when Isaac McCoy, a Baptist minister, became the first European to settle the area. By 1831, Frenchman Louis Campau established a trading post here and purchased what would eventually become the downtown area. The city of Grand Rapids was incorporated in 1850.
