While I prefer the beaches, that is tangential to what you said and I responded to.

In what way, specifically? I said that Indy was surrounded by flat farms. It is. I said GR is right next to some of the nicest freshwater beaches in the world. It is.

Please refer back to my previous posts. I am not interested in going around in circles.

That is exactly what you're doing. I said I liked the terrain around GR better than Indy, you (a local) were offended, and then you kept going around in circles when you and I both know that the area around GR is much more scenic than the area around Indy, the world's largest landlocked city. Which is double the size, and "wins" this thread in terms of the OP bullet points.

The fact that you think I was offended illustrates that you do not even understand what I said. Or you are intentionally playing dumb. I don't know or care. No reason to derail this thread with this nonsense. Either you understand or you don't. If you need the last word, please say whatever you need to in order to feel like you won so we can move on.

Grand Rapids for sure. It is a pretty city with lots of neat attractions and culture.

Lived in western MI near GR, have family in central IN including Indianapolis. I'll give you that Indianapolis has more 'stuff' because it's bigger, but if I had to live there I'd cry. GR by a mile for me.

I've never been to Indy, but I have been to GR and love it.

It's a very attractive area, and for a metro of around a million it has pretty much everything you could want or need. If not, Chicago is handy.

What I really admire is that 3 very wealthy native families care about and invest in the metro, particularly Downtown & culturally - and it shows.

It is ironic that the three wealthiest families in Michigan hail from the Grand Rapids area. This wouldn't be a thread if it were not the case. It's definitely a heavy hitter culturally when size is considered.
