Moving up the coast to Grand Haven, Coast Guard City. A city that comes alive in the summer, quiet and quaint in ther seasons. If you are someone who loves the activities of the waterfront, entertainment of different festivals going on almost every weekend, love to take walks along the beach, walk the parks, enjoys boating or just want to sit a people watch Grand Haven may be the place. This city has a smaller downtown, has some really great restaurants to enjoy. There is no other city on the lake shore that you can walk from the highway all the way to the beach. The city thrives on the waterfront. The housing market in Grand Haven has remained fairly steady although there are some great values there too. There are many housing areas in Grand Haven where you can walk from your home to water in a matter of minutes. Friendly city welcoming city.
Next comes Muskegon, which I call the city that is sleeping now but be ready as it has so much to offer. There is an upswing of urban renewal going on for Muskegon out of all 3 has been hit the economically hit the hardest. The housing values have decline the most in this area therefore it makes for a very desirable place to purchase a home. There is no other city along the lakeshore that has a much waterfront there are 3 state beaches and 1 city beach. There is Mona Lake, , Muskegon Lake and then Bear Lake and Lake Michaigan to enjoy. As for a community this city also thrives in the summer with events happening all summer long. The city has been working hard to develope a walking path and bike path around the lakes as well to take you to other northern cities. There are great medical facilities in Muskegon which as you stated possible of choices to retire medical care may be a concern. It is close and yes all 3 are close to Grand Rapids for care as well. Muskegon has 2 great hospitals each specializing in different medical concerns. Plenty of shopping can be found in Muskegon as well downtown or at the Lakes Mall. I may be a little more particial to Muskegon as this is where I call home but the rest of family may different as they live in Grand Haven
I could go on more about each but I will stop for now. If you would like more information I would be happy to talk to you more about each one. I hope this helps you a little.
