It may be a bit of a hike for work, but don't completely discount moving to Rochester Hills. I live in Rochester and they're completely renovating downtown right now an we've just secured a grant to restore Paint Creek that runs through Rochester Municipal park and downtown. Traffic's a bear, but it's going to be beautiful once the transformation's complete. They've dug up Main Street and are using the original red bricks for accent pieces and sidewalks up and down Main. Construction's moving along quickly and they plan on having everything complete right before the Big Bright Light Show installation for Xmas. It's going to make an already fantastic place to live even better!

They are all wonderful places to relax, enjoy the beaches and walk downtown. although there are not a lot of kid friendly places or entertainment.

Holland has Dutch Village which is overpriced but kid things to do - petting farm, cheese making area, swings. DD worked there for 2 summers. You can also go to Windmill Island and see a real Dutch windmill.

All the towns have great places to eat and lots of bars. Not a ton of franchised places, mostly locally owned.

If you have any specific questions let me know.
Hi WDWMom! Greeting from Grosse Pointe! Just wanted to let you know we spent a week in South Haven this summer and fell in love with SW Michigan We've also been to Tawas (friends with a cottage there), Mackinac Island, a day in Harbor Springs, and planning some skiing at Boyne this winter. Friends and family back East ask if we're ever moving back and we quickly reply "NEVER!"

We met a few fellow Michiganders on our cruise last February (our meet leader is from A2) which was alot of fun.

My son too... He knows if they win I'll let him miss school for the parade, and some things are really important to a 14yo!
