You can’t go wrong in a community featuring the largest beach in West Michigan and being known for being one of the friendliest cities in all of Michigan and that’s just what you get in Muskegon, Michigan. Muskegon continues to be one of the biggest tourist cities in Michigan because of its beautiful beaches, salmon and steelhead fishing, and 26 miles of Lake Michigan coastline. Having a long history linked to its shorelines and fresh water, the City of Muskegon began as a thriving center for fur and log trade. Additionally, the timber from Muskegon was used to rebuild the City of Chicago after the great Chicago fire of 1871. Today, Muskegon embraces its history and continues to grow all while being one of the cleanest and friendliest cities in the Midwest.
