Growing up in Muskegon County was an interesting experience, in section because I had to live in 2 separate residences after our parents divorced when I was only eight years old.
My dad lived in a house in the town of Muskegon while our mom rented a beach house near her parents in Whitehall.
Although at the time I wanted to live with our dad, I began to realize this wasn’t the best idea. It’s not that I have anything against Muskegon, however it’s hard to compare that entire town to a pleasantly quiet community prefer Whitehall that has little to no crime. It’s not exactly a secret that certain towns in Muskegon aren’t exactly safe for young children. Thankfully our mom insisted that I stay with her in Whitehall after someone tried to cut into our dad’s house in the middle of the night while we were asleep. One of the things I prefer the most about Whitehall is its small size compared to Muskegon. On the 1 hand it’s unlucky that we have fewer cannabis dispensaries within the town limits of Whitehall compared to the larger Muskegon area, I’d trade that for a quieter beach house any afternoon of the week. There’s a phenomenal cannabis store on Lake St near Goodrich Park. They have various sales on unusual cannabis products throughout the week, varying from month to month as well. They offer discounts for purchasers who have food stamps or anyone over the age of 70. It’s nice living in a town that’s so quaint and beautiful with its natural wonders.
