Spring Lake Reviews
Rating 4.1 out of 5 10 reviews
The lake is amazing, the atmosphere is great and, the town is homey. I have lived here all my life and I am so glad that I did.
Spring Lake is not quite the "small town" you read about in Nicholas Spark books, nor is it a city that stays awake until wee hours of the night. But, Spring Lake is the town I love calling home. We are surrounded by water..FRESH water, you cannot beat that. We have unlimited access to hiking through miles of forest land. We can hop in kayaks and head down the river towards the big lake or up the river towards the nearest city. Spring Lake is perfectly placed in the middle of wildlife and city life. Whatever you feel like doing, you're no more than a 30 minute drive away.
Spring Lake is a close-knit, family-friendly town that is nearby Grand Haven. Spring Lake public schools are well known for being in the top 2% of schools in the United States academically. It has beautiful beaches on Lake Michigan and excellent locations to take a dip or a boat into the water. Spring Lake's housing market can be a bit pricy, but the community is friendly and well-educated.
Spring Lake is a very friendly town. It is small enough so that everyone knows each other, but large enough to meet new friends. The school systems are amazing, and the town is very clean. I grew up right next to the elementary schools and it was a very great experience.
I am currently renting in Spring Lake and it is a nice town. It is super safe, it is right on Lake Michigan so it is beautiful and it is close enough to Grand Rapids to commute if need be.
Our weather is very moderate. It is rare for severe weather to take place.
There is only one bar and a few restaurants in the area. You have to drive to out of town to get a decent dinner.
Employment is happening everywhere, but the openings aren't always the best, or they are specialized jobs.
The businesses are good, but it's a smaller town, so there is a smaller variety of different businesses. You can get most of what you need, but it can be difficult to find more specialized products.
