AARP recently named 10 U.S. cities as their top picks for retirees and Grand Rapids MI was among them. Best Places To Live, Retire Reasons cited included affordable housing, access to many cultural and recreational venues at little or low costs, great dining options and craft beers, vibrant downtown area, and no state tax on Social Security income.
Parks and access to inland lakes and Lake Michigan also add to the appeal of this area and provide access to walking and biking trails throughout the communities and area. Outdoor activities and recreational opportunities are prevalent in each season of the year.
With an area population of just under 800,000 Grand Rapids is a great city to call home in any stage of life!
