Julie’s favorite part about living in West Michigan

Julie’s favorite parts about living in West Michigan are the natural resources & family friendly atmosphere. Wherever you are in West Michigan, you are only a few minutes from family activities such as hiking, biking or kayaking. It is the perfect place to raise a family!
