Asked by Kim, Grand Rapids, MI Tue Aug 28, 2012

Looking for SAFE neigborhood, local shopping (groceries), normal suburb amenties (gas, gym, parks, dry cleaners, restaurants, etc.). Like eclectic but also privacy. Outdoorsy type but also love culutural events all types (concerts, museums, etc.) Lived in both cities and suburbs - liked both. Must be 15-20min max commute. Budget around $1000-$1200. Need garage and storage would be great. Must have 2b/2bath. I don't know GR at all but when I drove into city liked the Reed lake and lakeshore drive homes seemed nice. Any condos, apartments or houses for rent there? Seems to be a lot of crime outlying areas when I stayed at Marriott hotel I wandered far and saw a few shady things. Loved Amway though! Kentwood is where the cab driver told me to check and the lady at the desk in hotel said Heritage Hills. I want to be safe, quiet but some diversity and eclectic is okay too. Not all old or all young but most definitely not HUD or borderline impovishered foreclosure area. Thanks Much!
