Hey Trib, if your going to use crappy clip art for your articles, could you at least refrain from grabbing images off Google that have water marks on them. Just plan lazy...

Here's something to put things into perspective: Top 10 US travel destinations for 2014

1. Grand Rapids & Lake Michigan’s Gold Coast

Beach bums, beer lovers, and art enthusiasts agree: there’s a lot to love about western Michigan this year. Grand Rapids, Michigan’s second-largest city, was voted best beer city in the US by the national Beer Examiner blog in 2012 and 2013, and its beer-tourism revolution rages on. Over 25 craft breweries pour in the area, and events like Cool Brews Hot Eats and the Winter Beer Festival (both in February), and the Summer Craft Beer Festival (August), keep the city festive year-round. Hops aside, the secret about Grand Rapids’ fabulous art scene is getting out. In addition to the impressive blooms and Rodin sculptures in the Frederik Meijer Gardens, and the excellent Grand Rapids Art Museum housed in a cool LEED Gold certified building, Grand Rapids is home to the world’s largest art competition, ArtPrize, in which more than 1700 creatives display their masterpieces.

A mere 30 miles away sprawls Lake Michigan’s Gold Coast, perhaps the USA’s most unexpected beach getaway. Some argue that these shores rival Hawaii’s and Southern California’s. Along 300 miles of seemingly endless beaches lie sugar-white dunes, wineries, antiquing, U-pick orchards and berry farms, cider houses, Hemingway haunts – you can even go surfing. In Michigan! So if you never thought you could head to the Midwest for a Cape Cod-esque beach vacation, think again.

I know I saw that too, it's a catch 22 if we should be pleased about the exposure or not. None of us here need to read about what a wonderful place West Michigan is, like we didn't know.


It's a pride thing.


Did you clear this with the DDA Lani? I'm pretty sure, given their recent stance on bringing people into Grand Haven, that you could be in big trouble for pointing this out. Lord knows we don't need a bunch more riff-raff running thru town, spending money and having a good time......


Agreed. Grand Rapids is a happening town, and I thank all it's benefactors and city leaders for making it so. What I like, though, is being able to catch steelhead in the shadow of modern buildings while talking to homeless folks. Not many places like that.


That's not all you can catch in the shadow of a modern building, or in any shadow for that matter.
