Just four miles north of downtown Grand Rapids, Alpine Township combines rural charm with urban amenities. About 75% of the township is prime farmland – including “The Ridge,” a unique topographical feature that is a favorite of agritourists. Yet Alpine Avenue, the region’s main thoroughfare, is one of the area’s busiest retail corridors. You’ll find famous brand-name stores and restaurants, and an array of lodging options.
