You’ll be able to walk around 10 minutes to classes at Grand Valley State University. If you need to reach the north side of campus in a hurry, jump in your car and drive there in five. There’s a public bus running from right by your home as well, so heading out to pick up a bite to eat from one of the restaurants along Lake Michigan Drive is easy. On weekends, explore the river and parks around Allendale by car, or drive 25 minutes east to Grand Rapids or west to Lake Michigan.
Return to your townhome at the end of a day out and park your car in the garage before walking along the lawn to your front door. Drop your bags down then shoot some hoops on the basketball court, or relax in the games room playing pool. There’s plenty of space to catch up with housemates in your new home, or you can all head to the common lounge and watch the big game on the large screen TV.
Keep active with regular workouts in the fitness center, then use the washer and dryer in your townhome to stay on top of your laundry. Make meals with housemates using the modern appliances in the kitchen and sit at the breakfast bar or out on your deck to eat – the dishwasher can handle the dirty pots and pans. Freshen up with a shower in your private bathroom before going out to meet friends for drinks.
Pass by the on-site management team to say hi, see what events are coming up or pick up any packages that have come for you while you were out. They’ll be happy to help with any maintenance requests you might have as well.
