Very family friendly! Love how close to lakeshore and downtown Grand Rapids. Great combination of family and city living. Downtown Zeeland is also very family oriented and has its own free splashpad during the summer months!

Zeeland offers a great place to raise a family along with great schools, with many academic opportunities for the future. Their schools are continually improving so kids can further their education in their future. would highly recommend considering visiting, or living in this area.
I liked growing up in Zeeland, it's a great place to start a family. It has good schools that offer a lot of opportunities and options and also has lots of nice neighborhoods to choose from. I also love how close it is the Lake Michigan. It's only about a 15 minute drive to the beach so it allows for plenty of spontaneous beach trips with family and friends.
