Huge Culturally


Muskegon Lake entranceI have to give my plug for Muskegon, MI.

While it always seems like Muskegon is struggling economically and has a pretty poor reputation for being a blue collar town, Muskegon has really great things going on. There are great natural resources with nearly unlimited access to water. Four distinct seasons mean you won’t get burned out.

You would be hard pressed to find a city Muskegon’s size that has the cultural assets that Muskegon does wit h a symphony and an art museum with the third largest art collection in the Midwest behind only Chicago and Detroit. There are a ton of festivals and community gatherings. Not to mention a rich history. In fact at one time during the lumber era, Muskegon was home to more millionaires than any other place in the country.

So anyway, come and visit, you might want to stay a while.

    I am having trouble imagining that Muskegon’s art museum has a bigger collection that the Minnepolis Institute of Arts. Are you talking sheer number of pieces?
