Zeeland isn’t necessarily set back in time, it’s very modern and updated, but it has that old school feel. Very friendly. Great place for walking and riding bikes. Such a beautiful place. Great people! Great community! Very up and coming. Plenty to do for a small town!

It's a great cozy town with an amazing school system. Zeeland Public Schools creates a safe environment with talented and thoughtful teachers. The community is kind, loving and always willing to help. Downtown Zeeland has really grown the past few years increasing business and opportunities for its residents.
I really love how involved the city gets in events and with their citizens in general. The city is also safe and family friendly with a beautiful downtown area and nice quiet streets. The only two things I would change about the city is the extremely strict speed limit enforcement and the conservative and narrow-minded views of some of the residents and their attitude towards change,
