Grand Rapids is featured in another story of top places to visit in 2014 — and this time, The Huffington Post travel section covers the globe.

The Huffington Post names the city and the nearby lakeshore as one of 14 “under-the-radar” travel destinations for 2014.

The post this week actually cites the recent inclusion of Grand Rapids and Lake Michigan’s Gold Coast in a Lonely Planet story on U.S. travel hot spots for 2014.

“Lonely Planet named Grand Rapids the top U.S. destination to check out in 2014,” the post states. “Grand Rapids has been voted the best beer city in America and boasts more than 25 craft breweries nearby. The city also has a lively art scene and tons of festivals. Thirty miles away, Lake Michigan's Gold Coast offers the prime location for an unexpected beach getaway, with 300 miles of gorgeous waterfront.”
