I would like to know what kind of numbers we had here last year.
I had heard Ludington was one of the most visited, but I think the most visited may be Dodge State Park No. 4 in Oakland County (within 20 minutes drive of 4.5 million people). I'm unable to find data to back any of this up, however.

I wouldn't doubt that one of the parks down in a more populated section of the state gets more visits than the one here, but finding the numbers seems impossible. I have looked all over with zero luck.

It does look like it is going to another busy year though. The out of state plates are already picking up in number rather fast around here.

Saugatuck is known for its appreciation of the arts, I don't know about boho.. but you'd love Uncommon Grounds, they even allow pets

Grand Haven is a carnival, in short. Lots of kids and sex.

Holland is old money.. very beautiful, gorgeous beaches..

My bet is you fall for Saug.

O.K. just read the posts on this thread and I want to know if a single 64 yrs. young woman would fit in any of these places. Sounds likes it's all about High Schools and children and family. Is there any where a more mature woman would feel comfortable and find peers?? Not nesscerealy old decrepid people? But, I'm way past the PTA mom thing. Linda

Nah, you'll be fine.
Holland is one of America's top retirement destinations apparently.
Saugatuck is an artists' community, full of people in their 60s.
I'd say Grand Haven is a little more family oriented, but just barely.

Truth is, the real estate near the water is expensive enough that people in the 60s are most likely to own it. You will find many folks in your stage of life.
