East Grand Rapids Michigan is America's hometown, at least for quite a few famous
people and lots of not-so-famous people. Gerald R Ford, our 38th President and
our 40th Vice President grew up in Grand Rapids and lived in East Grand Rapids
when he served 25 years as a Michigan Congressman. The movie American Pie
was written by Adam Herz, who grew up in East Grand Rapids and based the movie
on his teen years.
But East Grand Rapids Michigan is more than a famous hometown, it is a
quintessential American hometown. The population is about 11,000 people, and it
has fewer than 4000 housing units. East Grand Rapids has 4 seasons, so you
can enjoy all seasonal sports and outdoor events.
You can walk or bike to almost anywhere in East in a short time, it has about 3 square
miles of total area. You can frolic in Collins Park on Reeds Lake almost year round.
If you jet ski, sail, wind surf, fish, or just like to gaze at the water, Reeds Lake is a
prominent part of the local community activities.
