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.

    Here we go again!! Another list trying to make Grand Rapids look like were some hip city. The city so badly wants to be culturally relevant, but it’s too conservative and homogeneous. Everytime the city makes a list its headline news. Give it up GR. It’s a hyper-conservative city that’s trying to grasp with the 21st century.

    Who paid off the magazine on this one? Grand Crapids, the city where residents can’t wait to move out! Hey DeVos family, put a knife in Artprize, it’s way overdone!
