Grand Rapids, Mich. (GRBJ) Grand Rapids isn't the best city in Michigan.

In fact, it's not even one of the best 25 cities in the state according to an article from our partner The Grand Rapids Business Journal.

The national residential real estate broker Movoto released a ranking of "The 10 Best Cities in Michigan," yesterday.

Movoto operates an online database with millions of residential real estate listings and connects homebuyers with agents at local brokerages.

Movoto examined data on the 50 most-populous cities and townships in the state.

Each town's ranking is based on six factors. The first is its amenities, such as shopping, dining and entertainment options.

The other five - the cost of living, crime rate, education level, employment income and home value - are rated on whether each is above or below the state average.

Midland came out on top.  Grand Rapids is ranked 27th. For more click on the link to the Grand Rapids Business Journal for the complete story.
