Hudsonville is a growing community outside of Grand Rapids Michigan that never ceases to amaze. Starting off as just a little old salad bowl city Hudsonville is growing into a thriving, fun place to live. We have excellent education for students, and its incredibly safe. Education and safety would definitely be at the top of our priority list. We have new and exciting resturants along with old family favorites, but you cant forget the new and pretty tasty shops we have going in right in the heart of Hudsonville. We have plenty of Jobs for everyone of all shapes of life. As we are growing it is becoming a little competitive to find just the perfect house because of Hudsonville's excellent school system. Dont miss the opportunity to start and grow a family in such an amazing family friendly town. But if that is not your way of life thats okay! We have many different excellent sport bars and resturants just for the fun night owl. Im glad to have been born and raised in Hudsonville!

I do like how it is growing, more people will hopefully lead to more acceptance. It's a very close-minded community, very white, rich and christian. Not always LGBT friendly. It is a very close knit community, everybody knows everybody. Football games are a staple. Overall, too much of a bible-thumping town.
I have lived in Hudsonville all my life and think it is a great town to live in. We are right between Grand Rapids and Holland so if we want to go to the city in GR or cute shops in Holland it's only 20 minutes away. We have farms all around us but aren't in the middle of nowhere. Next, the city is safe and I haven't had any problems in that area. Lastly, it is a great place for any generation to live because there are things to do for each generation.
