On the Lakeshore, you’ll find a unique combination of tradition and innovation that makes West Michigan a special place to live and work.

What’s more, you’ll find a work/play balance unlike any other. Just minutes from Lake Michigan, West Michigan enjoys everything that 250 miles of beaches has to offer in the summer—things like swimming and boating—as well as things like sledding and ice fishing when the temperature drops. Put simply, it’s a beautiful place to be.

Our list goes on, but we think the lists others have put the Lakeshore on are more impressive—lists like the Gallup Poll’s happiest places to live, Yahoo Travel’s great American beach towns, the tidiest cities in America, Money Magazine’s best places to retire, or Forbes Magazine’s best places for business and careers.
