According to the folks at WalletHub, Holland,MI is the BEST small city in the U.S. to start a new business. This list was based on categories like cost of office space, corporate taxes and area business growth. In an interview with CBS Detroit, Holland's Mayor Nancy DeBoer also credited the strong Dutch work ethic.

BTW - North Chicago, Illinois came in second. The twenty WORST towns were all in California.

If you've never been to Holland, (IMO) you should take a day this summer and spend some time both downtown and out at the beach at Holland State Park. If it's a nice day, get to the beach early to beat the traffic jam.
