NEW YORK – Be prepared for more visitors in Grand Rapids in 2016.
The New York Times produced a magnificent interactive web piece Thursday with the “52 Places to Go in 2016.” In the list, which includes cities in France, United Arab Emirates and Sweden, Grand Rapids, Michigan comes in at #20.
Grand Rapids comes in as the third U.S. city in the list, behind Park City, Utah and Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota. The video of Grand Rapids features Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park. The paragraph on Grand Rapids features our furniture history, the Downtown Market, ArtPrize, and, of course, our beer.
