Located along the shores of Lake Macatawa, Holland is a vibrant town with a very visible Dutch influence. With its charming atmosphere and many amenities, it comes as no surprise that the city was ranked by Money Magazine as one of the top five places to retire in America.
The city's events, attractions and cultural offerings reflect its Dutch heritage, including its world-famous Tulip Time Festival and historic downtown, which features over 85 unique shops. Its lakeside location also offers plenty of beaches and water activities for active seniors to enjoy in the summertime. Not only is Holland affordable for retirees, its low rates of violent crime and award-winning health care facilities mean seniors can live safely and comfortably.
According to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2019, assisted living in Holland costs an average of $4,240 per month. This amount is slightly higher than both the Michigan state average of $4,000 per month and the national average of $4,051 per month.
