Holland, Michigan, rated 2010's third happiest city, is a great place to live! The area itself has been on a steady rise, economically and culturally. As time goes on, the diversity is growing, and cultural acceptance follows. From the beach, to Tulip Time, to Christmas plays, to high school football, there is never a dull moment in this town. Even coming from a kid who's family didn't engage in those activities, it wasn't hard for me to independently get there. Hollanders and Zealanders are some of the nicest, gentle people you will ever meet. It has the quaint feel of a small town, with the population of a minor city, and the rich history of Dutch immigrants. Just watch out, there's always construction on some main street downtown!

Growing up here definitely made it difficult to understand why people are untrustworthy with their possessions. When I aged, I came to the conclusion that I was extremely fortunate to never have to deal with the uncertainty of certain areas. Emergency units are quick to respond if there ever was a serious incident, as rare as they are here. And the hospitals in the area, Holland Hospital, are among the most cutting edge in the nation!
I enjoy the town I live in because of the closeness and camaraderie of everyone knowing everyone. But because of the mainly white, conservative views of the population I feel extremely out of place because of my lack of a religious faith or upbringing. There is very little violent crime but the school I attended was essentially the "white" school while across in Holland was West Ottawa which was much larger and culturally diverse. Overall it's a decent place to live though if you want a small town family oriented place to live.
