Default Grand Rapids people - trip questions

Yes, it's me again. Is anyone willing to chat about Grand Rapids geography and distances? I'm trying to choose a hotel for a visit.

Is the city pretty compact? Does it take long if you want to go from one end to the other? What about traffic?

It can take up to 30 minutes in good traffic, but mostly its all fairly close (15mins) Traffic isnt horrible. I mean, we definitely have traffic, but nothing like very big cities. My husband is from Detroit and he says GR traffic is a dream.

Does anyone know of areas or close in suburbs with a downtown type area, (walkable local shopping/businesses), and good schools?

East Grand Rapids fits that description, it's lovely we almost moved there, but went out in the country instead.
Rockford is quite walkable with a pretty good reputation for schools, but they are 15min north of GR.

Rockford really does have a good rep for schools. If you can get them into forest hills district, I would do that since its closer to where you want to be, but don't move into a Grand Rapids district. Forest hills, north view, and rockford are all good.
