Sounds wonderful! Thanks for all the information on a place I wouldn't have thought to be so interesting. Add some graphics and watch your post hit the first page of a google search.

Grand Rapids and environs is a wonderful part of the great Sate of Michigan.  There really is a lot to do in this vibrant city just a short drive from Lake Michigan.  While a student in Kalamazoo, my fiends and I would travel to GR frequently to catch sporting events and visit the local museums.

I Think Grand Michigan Shall get the CAPITAL.

Because it will make a perfect TOUR For Tourist that are interested in The State Of Michigan.

And GrandRapids can give the State Of Michigan A BETTER Reputation Than LANSING MI.

I'am pretty sure that many tourist over the years and centuries have completly lost Interest in The State Of Michigan. Especially if they have not seen other parts of Michigan.

Because there are so many other counties have way better JUDGEMENT Than Lansing MI. I Know I witnessed Lansing Difficulties for 27 YRS.

Is how I became to learn about GrandRapids.

I had to leave Lansing Mi. Many times for the safety of my FREEDOM and well-being. Because the HATE and The Favortism Is rediculous TIL This DAY.
