The best thing about living in Muskegon, MI is the beach. Hoffmaster State Park is beautiful especially during the sunset. It's not as crowded as most beaches because Muskegon is a small town. It's a perfect place to fish, swim, hike, walk in the sand and other water activities.
Living in Muskegon has its perks especially since it is a very safe town and lots to do. We have a museum, historic sites, and a small amusement/ water park (Michigan's Adventure). If you like shopping, we have a few malls here. I prefer the Lakes Mall because there are more stores, plenty of parking, closer to my house and more food court options.
The schools are great as well including two elementary schools, one middle and high school. Depending on where you live, your kids will either walk to school or take the bus. There are tons of sports, extracurricular activities that keep the kids busy. I enjoy watching the high school football games during football season.
