Welcome to


Norton Shores is a city located along the coast of Lake Michigan. Some would call us a bedroom community, a suburb that people come home to after work, or a place that you drive through on your way to somewhere else. But look a little closer and you’ll find that Norton Shores is a truly unique place…



We’re home to some of West Michigan’s most stunning parks and beaches. Sugary sand shorelines perfect for a swim, a paddle, a stroll and a sunset, and wooded paths and trails perfect for unplugging and reconnecting with the outdoors.
