Renter's Guide to Grand Rapids

Furniture City is waiting for you!

Grand Rapids is Michigan’s second-largest city, though it's tiny compared to the next-biggest, Detroit, which is three times larger and 157 miles away. But what it lacks in size, Grand Rapids makes up for in snow.

Thanks to Lake Effect snow over Lake Michigan, the city averages about 75 inches of the fluffy stuff every year. Hope you like snow men!

The average January temperature is 30°F, but July’s average high of 83°F helps balance things out.

Even with all that snow, Grand Rapids managed to earn 13th place on the U.S. News & World Report ranking of Best Places to Live in the U.S., based on factors like cost of living, employment opportunities, good schools, and safety.

Even more impressive is that Forbes named it the #1 City for Raising a Family, and AARP ranked it one of its best places to retire for less money.

Grand Rapids is 50 miles from Kalamazoo, 68 miles from Lansing, and is just a few short hours to Chicago, which is 177 miles away.
