Coming from California, you'll find your housing budget will pack a big punch here. especially in the burby-neighborhoods.
Republican but not ultra conservative or religious (agnostic).
This wild-eyed lefty thinks you'll fit in anywhere here just fine. Avoid the outlying areas of Grandville, Jenison or Byron Center, though;insular areas, in my opinion.

One thing you need to be warned about:

There's a reason it's called Sunny California.The winter sun here in West Michigan is...........elusive. Prepare yourself. Lay in a stock of melatonin,
Hope you make it to our shores! You will find a warm welcome here.

LOL, you rock. Thank you!
We actually are lucky enough to be able to travel and get the F out for a month or two when winter gets too oppressive feeling. I’m hoping that’ll create the best of both worlds vibe.

Interestingly, we lived in Portland, OR for 2.5 years. It was lovely but not a forever home for us.

Your response makes me feel good and gives me hope!

Yeah, just to put it in perspective, I don't think I've actually seen the sun in 2-3 weeks.
We are in the cloudy, gray, dark time of the year in Michigan.
I feel like for the past week or so its been perpetual twilight, even at midday.
