The experts at BonusFinder recently completed an extensive study on the Best Party Cities in the US, in which they compared over a hundred destinations in 11 different categories. These included the number of bars per 10,000 people, an average price of a night in a hotel, number of late night food venues and similar factors.

So which city do you think tops the list? My assumption would be either Lansing or Ann Arbor due to their large college population. But it turns out, it's not the kids who like to party the hardest in the mitten state...

We're already dubbed "Beer City USA", so it only makes sense that Michigan's thirstiest city likes to party the hardest out of all of the others in the state. It's also regionally strong when it comes to the party vibes, being named #5 in the Great Lakes region for partying.

Nationwide though, we're pretty tame since Grand Rapids ranked 48th nationally for the most partying, with the second closest Michigan city being Detroit who snuck in at 78th place.

Why are we so great at having a good time? It turns out- it's extremely affordable to drink in West Michigan. It's also pretty easy and affordable to find a safe ride home if you've had a few too many, according to their findings.

So congrats Grand Rapids, throw a party, tip a few back and have some fun. Turns out, you're in great company. If you'd like to see all of the other cities that made the cut, and find out where others fall on the list you can visit their website.
