A small town with a big heart!

Of all the communities in America, many choose to retire in Holland, Michigan.  Although we’re definitely partial to our community, we’re not the only ones who feel that Holland is a great place to retire.

2nd Most Happiest Place to Live in America!
Holland is right behind #1 Boulder, Colorado, and just ahead of Honolulu, Hawaii in the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index for 2010.

Based on more than 353,000 interviews of Americans in 2009, people were asked to rate their finances, physical health, jobs, communities, and emotional state of mind.  Holland came out as #2!

Holland Rated "Best Place to Retire” By Money Magazine in 2009!
Twice now, Money Magazine listed Holland as one of their "Best Places to Retire."  They cite the lakeshore, heated downtown streets, activities, festivals, Hope College, and the general affordability as reasons why our quality of life is exceptional.

You Can Remain “Evergreen!”
A bit south of mid-town, is a unique resource for adults 50 years and older: Evergreen Commons.

Local philanthropists traveled the world benchmarking the ideal center for older adults. Evergreen Commons is the result of years of their dedicated efforts. 

Today their 65,000 foot building is home to a complete fitness center (with indoor pool), a restaurant, a very busy auditorium, many classrooms, a wood shop, adult day care, game room, and even a gift shop!   Evergreen uses its building to the maximum offering social events, entertainment, all kinds of learning and creative opportunities, a place to stay in shape, travel opportunities, and a great spot simply to relax and meet new friends.  Evergreen is an amazing resource for our community’s adults.

Downtown Holland at Your Doorstep!
At The Warm Friend, you’ll have a front-row seat to all that Holland’s magnificent downtown has to offer.  With Holland’s unique Snowmelt system, sidewalks stay clear and dry. 

It’s a rare day that you won’t want to stroll across the road to the AlpenRose Bistro for a fresh pastry, or down the street to enjoy the Holland Arts Council, or around the corner to attend a leave-it-all-on-the-court basketball game at Hope College.  And the shopping…well, let’s just say that people return again and again to enjoy the wide variety of clothing stores, gift shops, art galleries, home decorating stores, restaurants, and more!

You’re just down the street from the Holland Farmer’s Market, which is an entire morning’s worth of entertainment on Wednesdays and Saturdays.  And there’s always something going on downtown for entertainment, including Thursday Night Street Performers Series in the summer months, concerts, beautiful Christmas happenings, special shopping events, and community festivals.

Holland’s award winning downtown will captivate you with its personal touch, variety, and its ever-changing personality.
