video: Pure Michigan’s version of Grand Rapids

Kate tipped me off to this newish Pure Michigan ad of Grand Rapids that is so heartwarming and touching, you are beyond desperate to visit this magical place.

Except, it’s not quite 100% true. Shocking, I know. The biggest faux pas is that the lovely lake shots they keep interjecting? Lake Michigan is roughly 30 miles away. The art museum looks way more entertaining then it actually is, and the walk through the forest shot? GR is urban sprawl, that’s not even really in the city.

But hey! AMBIANCE IS EVERYTHING.

P.S. Rowster Coffee is a few blocks from Throbbing Manor. So there is that.
