By: Luke Bouman

Holland Michigan is located in the Southwestern portion of Michigan. It is located on Lake Michigan and is separated by Lake Macatawa. Lake Macatawa is a popular inland lake separating the north side of Holland and the South Side of Holland. Holland Michigan is a great place to live and a great place to retire.

If you are considering re-locating then you should check out Holland, Michigan. Holland was voted by Money Magazine as a "Top 5 City to Retire." Holland has a lovely community with fantastic lakes and beaches, great schools and a low crime rate. A number of residents who own lakefront properties own their primary home in Holland and spend their winters in Florida or Arizona.

Lake Michigan and Lake Macatawa provide Holland residents and tourist's time to enjoy fishing, water sports, the warm summer weather, sunsets, and the beach. If you are not interested in taking advantage of the water, there is a shopping mall, an outlet mall, and a fabulous downtown with stores and restaurants.

The beaches in Holland Michigan are fantastic and the Holland State Park is very popular. In the year 2000 there were over 35,000 residents. All of these residents keep the beaches full and the economy going.

Tulip Time is a huge event that takes place in Holland Michigan. Every year during the month of May Tulip Time takes place. During this festive event thousands of tourists visit the area. There are millions of tulips to view, entertaining dutch dancing, parades, fireworks and great snacks. Being a part of Tulip time and being able to say you are a resident of the city is awesome. The temperature in the summer often times reaches the 90's. Even with these warm summers there are still times were we get snow in October. With all the snow schools are canceled from time to time, which is always a hit with the kids.
