For South of Ludington, I like the Ferrysburg/Grand Haven area and the Brdigman area.

you don't mention whether you are interested in a larger or smaller town. Holland is nice, as is Grand Haven, which has already been mentioned. You might be interested in Grand Rapids for a larger town. I hear there are jobs in Muskegon too, but have also heard mixed reviews about the city itself.

Thanks,I'm looking for a town between 30.000 and 50.000 close to Lake Michigan ,parks and plenty of resturants. and plenty of jobs to chose from.Muskegon sounds good too.so does ferrysburg/Grand Haven want to relocate to a colder climate Michigan sounds great.besides I have family in the thumb area.

North Muskegon, Whitehall and Montague might be good candidates for you. I don't know about "plenty of jobs to choose from" anywhere in Michigan, but the Muskegon area job market is not horrible.

On the lake? Grand Haven for living, Holland for visiting.

I work in Holland and choose to commute from the Grand Haven area. Grand Haven is a better place to live IMHO. Better restaurants and better parks.
