The Heart Of The Village
Small Town, Big Lakes
Connecting two of the largest man made lakes in the U.S. you will find the heart of Grand Rivers, an old-fashion Main Street area like one that you remember from another time. What you will not find here; homogeneous big box stores, relentless traffic, stop lights, franchised restaurants, or fast-food and lodging chains. What you will find here; a walkable blend of old Rivertown wood buildings with front porches and benches for the husbands, unique retail therapy inside for the wives, kids in line for ice cream cones, and a walking trail leading to gorgeous lake views and spectacular sunsets. The village center is made complete with the award-winning Patti’s 1880s Settlement and Restaurant and the Badgett Playhouse Theater. Take one look at their glowing online reviews and both will quickly go on your must-visit list.
