If you’re looking for a small, quiet town to settle down, Hudsonville is the place for you! The town is mostly made up of farmland and suburbs, but Chicago Drive and the Gerald R. Ford Freeway run through it, so it’s an easy commute to both Grand Rapids and Holland! Farmers thrive in the area; drive through the town and you’ll notice large fields and rich, dark soil. Situated on an ancient river bottom, crops grow plentiful on its extremely fertile muck fields. The wide variety of vegetables grown here, such as celery, onions, and carrots, give Hudsonville its nickname as “Michigan’s Salad Bowl”. In fact, it entered the Guinness Book of World Records for the world’s longest salad bar during the town’s Salad Bowl Bash in 2013!
