Wooden Windmill in Holland Michigan
A favorite Lake Michigan vacation spot, Holland was settled by the Dutch in the mid-1800s and is still known for its springtime tulips and beaches. If you are visiting Holland, here are five places to visit:
  • Tulip Time is a nine-day festival in early May that celebrates the community’s millions of tulips and hundreds of Dutch Dancers in wooden shoes.
  • Windmill Island Gardens is a city parkland home to tulips of all colors, Dutch-themed shops, and an authentic Dutch windmill.
  • Nelis’ Dutch Village is a 100-year-old family-owned destination that celebrates Dutch culture with children’s rides and shops.
  • Holland State Park, at the end of Ottawa Beach Road, is known for its sugar sand beaches and beautiful sunsets. You also can take a photo with the iconic Big Red lighthouse as a backdrop.
  • Holland Museum features an impressive collection of Dutch art and artifacts, along with collections of local heritage.
