I sucked Betsy Devos's tiddies and all I got was gentrified. :(
Person 1: Where are you from?
Person 2: Grand Rapids, Michigan. There is lead in the water on The Westside of town.
Person 1: That's sad.
Person 2: Yes. Very. Betsy DeVos put a bike rack in my asshole and now I'm blind.

A great city in West MI, with lots of opportunities, people, and things to do. Grand Rapids gets better and better every year. Was known as the "furniture city". But is now more popular in the arts with two art museums, Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts, Saint Cecelia Music Society, WMCAT, Civic Theater, Kendall Art College, and also the largest art competition in the world, ARTPRIZE. Also famous for the worlds largest lip dub to the song "American Pie" led by Rob Bliss. There is so many things to do around GR every season. And is also known for the Fredrick Mejier Gardens and Sculpture Park, with an indoor tropical rain forest green house. GR gets a bad, exaggerated rep about GRPS. But now has a new superintendent, and is getting better.
" I went to a wedding in Grand Rapids and I didn't want to leave, so many things to do rain or shine!"

"I love Grand Rapids because I'm a city girl, but NY, Chicago, and Detroit is to big and crowded."

"I love to take walks in the evening down town Grand Rapids when all the lights and the sun set are shining on the Grand River."

NOT the city in Michigan, but a quaint little town in northern Minnesota. The birth place of actress Judy Garland, where she began her acting career. Home of a real yellow brick road. The official town of the Wizard of Oz. A kick ass town to go fishing, hunting, etc. in.

City in Western Michigan with a population of about 200,000. People outside of Western MI generally have no idea where it is, possibly because nothing happens there. Called The Furniture Capital because Steelcase makes a few desks and chairs southwest of town. Dutch people abound in the area, as well as an increasing population of Hispanics. Former President Gerald Ford grew up near the city. The company called a pyramid scheme by some, Amway, alternatively Scamway, is also based nearby.
