When we decided to celebrate our launch of five new videos featuring some of Grand Rapids' most notable people and places, we knew we wanted to give back to all of you, the community made up of loyal locals and enthusiastic tourists. So we offered a prize of an iPad and an overnight stay in Grand Rapids, and asked readers to enter the random drawing by telling us something they love about Grand Rapids.
And wow, did we love reading all the responses! Over 200 of you chimed in to share your favorite things about Grand Rapids, from arts and architecture to food and family fun. Here were a few of our favorite comments:
- Sneak Peek and Giveaway Post
- Experience Farm-to-Fork Dining with Trillium Haven Restaurant
- Experience Lake Michigan with Kiteboarder Marc Hoeksema
- Experience Family with Singer-Songwriter Bryan VanderArk
- Experience Food Trucks with Molly Clauhs of The Silver Spork
