Live and Work in West Michigan

A growing economy, outstanding healthcare, low cost of living, award-winning schools, and diverse cultural options are just a few reasons why people choose West Michigan. Our region has a vibrant, big-city feel in Grand Rapids while retaining smaller-city charm in its neighborhoods, boutique shopping areas, and tree-lined streets-all combined in a virtual playground of arts and culture and natural beauty.



Going Green
West Michigan has gone green - in a big way. A full 11 percent of all LEED-certified buildings can be found in the Grand Rapids area, more than any other city in the nation. From the Grand Rapids Art Museum, the first LEED-certified art museum in the world, to the countless new buildings that have been designed using green principles, our communities are leading the Green Wave.

Working Together
West Michigan businesses know the value of collaboration. Companies from many industries, or from the same industry have been working together to elevate competitiveness for more than a quarter century. From engineering user groups, to entrepreneurial roundtables, West Michigan uses an extensive network of programs to connect companies and entrepreneurs with potential mentors and peers.

Arts & Culture
In addition to traditional museums with substantial collections, West Michigan has a lively underground fine arts scene, with galleries in downtown Grand Rapids and several other communities. We also have a vibrant performing arts community, anchored by three well-regarded regional theatres and several other more specialized companies bringing productions to inspire audiences virtually every weekend. Grand Rapids also hosts ArtPrize - a unique, open art competition that gives away the world's largest art prize.

West Michigan people know how to have fun. With the scenic Lake Michigan beaches, plenty of wooded parks, smaller lakes, and rivers and trails, our region offers an unparalleled variety of seasonal outdoor activities. And more than 1.5 million people attend museums, galleries, theatres, sporting events, and live performances every year.
