Lakeshore life at its absolute best! There might not be more “Pure Michigan” living than what you can find in these two towns. Both downtowns feature distinctly local shops, flavorful restaurants, legendary breweries (New Holland!), cool coffee shops, and ice cream so delicious at Captain Sundae that presidential candidates stop by. Holland was recently named the #1 place to start a business in the country. One of the reasons Holland is also a retirement destination–besides the heated sidewalks–is some of the best beaches in the country, but without sharks or salt :) You’ll find houses that are more than 100 years old as well as brand new builds, so there’s something for everyone.
