I have lived in the beautiful small city of Grand Haven, Michigan all my life. So many others long to live here after they vacation here, or retire here from jobs that brought them here from their own home towns. This page is just a blatant promotion for the beauty and ambiance of Grand Haven. The city is nestled on the shores of Lake Michigan at the mouth of the Grand River. In the Summer it is a vibrant tourist town, but it is an active community all year round with a good industrial base and closeness to several other vibrant communities. Popular activities in the Summer are boating, swimming, fishing, hiking and shopping. Our City Council is basically non-partisan and the economy is stable. In the Winter the city holds it's Winterfest, and schedules events such as the Great Chili Cook Off. I hate Winter, but I will admit that the Big Lake and Pier are beautiful in the Winter too.
