muskegon or holland?

Planning a summer getaway for our family of 4. We stayed in Holland last summer and loved the downtown area, the restaurants and the beaches. How does Muskegon compare?

Try ..Grand Haven, MI www.visitgrandhaven.com which is just south of ..Muskegon, MI www.visitmuskegon.com

While Muskegon does offer fantastic beaches, parks, attractions, shopping and scenery, their downtown has a long way to go yet. While Grand Haven has a few less attractions but is a first class resort town.

By combining the two together you will not run out of fun things to do.

But just incase, forty minuuts north is www.thinkdunes.com the only great lakes living dunes, dune rides and lighthouse tours. Just 45 minutes east is www.experiencegr.com ..Grand Rapids, MI.

This tri city regoin (Grand Rapids, Holland, Muskegon) can keep your family going a long time.

Downtown Muskegon is spaced out so not as enjoyable though they do offer alot. The charm, by far, however, rest in Grand Haven.

Www.beachtowns.org and www.eyeonmichigan.com and www.wmta.org should also be of help.

I would use Grand Haven as your base, and you can always check out Muskegon for a day trip to see if you want a longer stay for a future vacation.

Grand Haven definitely has more options of things to do than Muskegon, but you really couldn't go wrong with either town. If you are wanting to branch out a little I would check out Muskegon to try something new, but Grand Haven would have more options for food and activities.
