The GOSite is open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays until September 13. The information center located at the Grand Rapids Art Museum (GRAM) is currently gleaning public insight as to how GOSite will continue to develop. 

GOSite is staffed by a certified tourism ambassador to answer questions and orient individuals to the space. Users will have access to digital tools, scrolling information monitors, real time social media suggestions, a calendar of events and images of city amenities. 

Participants have an opportunity to win prizes if they can solve the GR Riddle. Designed to get people walking and exploring downtown, the GR Riddle is comprised of six stanzas for six weeks. Each one solved reveals hints towards the next. Players are allowed to enter one ballot card per week with a guess. Riddle hint location vouchers can be picked up on site. 

Folks can also participate in the GOSite Social Circle by sending in a video recording. The cell phone video can be up to 30 seconds and should include three things that you like to see and do in Grand Rapids. Examples and instructions can be found here.

Visitors can also leave suggestions on the wall of sticky notes or check out the visitors map that is tracking visitors from all around the globe. The Pop Up site is an opportunity for residents and visitors alike to express concerns and interests as to the future functions of the GOSite. 

The Rapidian, a program of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Community Media Center, relies on the community’s support to help cover the cost of training reporters and publishing content.
