Top Ten Reasons to Live in West Michigan

There are a lot of wonderful places around America to live, but we’re pretty partial to our neck of woods. Pride for our state runs deep and if you ask us, Michigan truly is the best place to live. Still not convinced? Here’s a list of our top ten reasons to live in West Michigan.
BEFORE HIRING

#1: Four Seasons

#2: The Shore Line

It only takes one visit to West Michigan’s shoreline to see why we think our state is a hidden gem. Take a walk in the fall or go for a dip in the summer. No matter what you do, just get the family outside for an adventurous day at the beach!


#3: Quality School Districts

#4: Small Towns, Big Cities

Whether you’re a city dweller or prefer the country, West Michigan has both for you to choose from. One of our absolute favorite things about Byron Center is that it’s a small community, conveniently located next to a thriving city, Grand Rapids. There is always something to do while still maintaining the small town experience.


#5: Weekend Escapes

Living in West Michigan means you are only a hop, skip and jump away from beautiful getaways. Head to Traverse City for the Film Festival one weekend or catch a Tiger’s game in Detroit the next. Whenever you’re looking to get away, you never have to go far.


#6: Festivals, festivals, festivals!
