I love living in Grand Rapids, MI. It's a big enough city to do everything you want. Lots of art, music (weekly free blues music concerts int he summer), and diversity. Close to the lakes. Chicago, Detroit, and the northern wilderness are all just 2-3 hour drive. You can even go to the church where Ron Paul's brother is the pastor. The best part though is that I live down the road from one of our best libertarian congressmen Justin Amash. It's great to live in a place where you honestly appreciate and like your congressman.
The only bad part is the winter's are a bit rough. I tend to take off to Costa Rica to recharge for a week or two in the winter. My wife stays down a few months longer, though she's from Costa Rica so I don't blame her for getting sick of winter. You can check it out at experiencegr.com.
