From the shops and restaurants in Gaslight Village to the meandering paths around Reeds Lake, East Grand Rapids has cultivated its own vibrant community just minutes from downtown Grand Rapids. Walkability is one of the key components to living in EGR – going for an evening stroll with a double scoop from Jersey Junction will become one of your favorite summer traditions. The houses range from century-old charmers to midcentury darlings to newly constructed houses on old lots. The schools are almost unparalleled, ranking #2 in the Grand Rapids Area and top 15 in the entire state. All of this is why USA Today deemed East Grand Rapids the #1 place to live in Michigan.
