Renting a vehicle comes with a lot of decisions.  What company to rent from?  What size vehicle?  For how long?  By the time people step up to the rental counter, the last thing they want to think about is… do I need additional insurance for a rental car?

Before you can answer that question, it’s important to understand not only what your options are but what needs you have regarding coverage.  Rental insurance is actually  not insurance at all.  Instead, it’s referred to as a Damage Waiver  and is completely optional.  There are three different types; which vary in cost and coverage.  While all three are optional, knowing the difference between them is vital when deciding if it’s necessary for you to fill in any gaps in coverage if the unfortunate happens.

Punxutawny Phil may have predicted an early spring this year but the weather in Hastings and in the general Barry County area suggests winter is here to stay, at least for a little while longer.  While most people on the road consider themselves adept at driving in wintry conditions, a refresher on Winter Driving Tips in Michigan seemed like a great topic for discussion.  Today, we’re focusing on specific tips and techniques to keep you accident free and your vehicle on the road!


Slow Down

One of the easiest things you can do to avoid a collision or ending up in a ditch, is to slow down.  Remember, those speed limits posted on the side of the road are meant for dry, ideal conditions and no longer apply when streets are covered in ice and snow.  Not only is your traction reduced in inclement weather but often [...]

deer logic-1

Hastings offers its residents a treasure trove of outdoor activities and is undoubtedly a hunter’s paradise with a variety of wildlife, including deer.  All that nature is sure to delight the outdoor enthusiast in all of us, but it’s also likely to be a place where deer are encountered on the road.  There were 624 deer-vehicle collisions reported in Barry County alone last year, with an incredible 42% of incidents taking place during the months of October, November and December.  While it may not always be possible to avoid hitting a deer completely, these tips can help reduce the odds.

Tips For Avoiding Deer

  • Slow Down: It may sound too simple to be effective, but slowing your speed in dense deer populations is one of the most important methods for avoiding them.  Driving conservatively not only allows you more time to stop your vehicle [...]


Michigan ranks in at #10 on the list of states motorists are most likely to hit a deer.  Drivers in the mitten have a 1 in 97 chance of colliding into a deer, with an average of $4,100 in damage done to their vehicles.  Kent County in particular is no stranger to deer collisions, and ranks 2nd in the state for occurrences.  While more than half of accidents involving a deer take place in October, November and December, the truth is they can happen any time.  Knowing ahead of time what to look for out on the road, can help you prevent possible injuries, costly repairs and the inconvenient loss of your vehicle.

Grand Rapids, Michigan has well established itself as a city deserving of the name Beer City, USA.  Even before the title was dubbed to Grand Rapids two consecutive years in a row, its residents had a passion for all things brewing related.  Not only were they interested in partaking in the impressive craft beer West Michigan has to offer but in learning about the process behind the bottle.   As the number of beer enthusiasts who wish to visit the different area breweries has grown, so too has the demand for tours.  Below, we’ll discuss options differing from Group Tours to Shuttle Services in the West Michigan area.

artprize 2

September in Grand Rapids has become synonymous with ArtPrize but it hasn’t always been that way.  Launched in 2009 by Rick Devos, it was designed to be a “social experiment” and the biggest art prize giveaway based solely on the public’s opinion.  Such a large cash prize awarded from popular vote of the community instead of by committees and curators input was completely unheard of in the art scene, and word that any artist could enter and possible win spread fast.

Seven years later, ArtPrize has grown steadily in its numbers of participants, with people coming from all over the world to be a part as either an artist or visitor in downtown Grand Rapids.  This year, 162 sites will host over 1,500 pieces of art throughout the city, including indoor and outdoor venues in [...]
