Between the covers of all vintage magazine collections, there lies historical perspective, fond memories, and old pieces of squished lunchmeat turned to jerky. Start a meat-curing collection with the help of today's Groupon: for $12, you get a one-year subscription to Grand Rapids Magazine. As western Michigan’s premier life and style monthly publication, Grand Rapids Magazine features articles and sections dedicated to local dining and restaurant reviews, city guides to events and places to visit, cutting-edge design and home furnishings, and all of the area’s must-have information. Recent issues have included articles on topics as varied as medical milestones, conservation, spiritualists, and bakeries.
Though other major retailers have offered a yearly subscription price of $19 online, this Groupon still offers the lowest price available.
If states had state liquids, Michigan's would be water—it's home to the Great Lakes, 36,000 miles of rivers and streams, and 11,000 inland lakes. Michigan Blue Magazine provides a perfect guide to life by all this water, focusing on lakefront homes, watersports, and environmental issues, such as what to do when your lake goes into hibernation. And that's just one of Gemini Publications' many publications, all of which cover a different facet of modern life in Michigan. Grand Rapids Magazine for instance, focuses on everything from fine dining to style in its namesake city, whereas Grand Rapids Business Journal boasts informative columns, profiles of local business people, a business calendar of events, and more.
