Take a break from BuzzFeed’s quiz about which Disney princess you are — and you’ll find Grand Rapids spotlighted on the popular site.

Grand Rapids ranks No. 13 on the ranking of “14 Underrated Places You’ll Really Want to Move to” posted last week by Penske Truck Rental, an advertiser on the social news and entertainment site.

“Located on the Grand River about 25 miles from Lake Michigan, Grand Rapids houses some awesome architecture,” the post says. “It’s a great place to be in the winter for ice skating or the summer for fishing.”

The ranking features shots of the Grand River downtown, an ArtPrize entry, fireworks downtown and a winter scene.
