Travel Tips for Holland

Very little that you have to...

by Douma359

Very little that you have to worry about. If you dont fit in or tick a few people off dont worry about it because they are too kind to do anything to you. It is the most conservative town in Michigan over 30,000 people though. But dont let this fool you. Conservative does not mean old boring and rich.

Holland Light House

by Stephen-KarenConn

Affectionally known at "Big Red," the Holland Lighthouse evolved from a simple wooden tower in 1872, to a stronger steel tower, to the present structure in 1936. The large square building was needed to house giant boilers to power the station's steam fog signal.

Access to the light itself is very restricted because private property must be crossed, and it is an active lighthouse. Good views may be had from across the channel at Holland State Park.

See the Street Cleaning Ceremony.

by no1birdlady

The Dutch are known for their cleanliness. During Tulip Time there are 2 different parades on different days. Before the parade, there is a White Glove Ceremony in which the mayor comes out with white gloves on, rubs the street with them and declares that it is dirty and must be cleaned. So then a large number of adults and children , dressed in authentic Dutch clothing and wooden shoes, comes down the street with brooms and buckets of water to pour on the streets to clean them. Most of the water ended up on the streets but some was thrown at another person and as the street scrubbers advanced to the end of the parade route, the foolishness increased. We had found a place along the parade route and sat on our jackets. Most of the residents had lawn chairs. You also could rent a space in the bleachers for $4 to view both the screet scrubbing and the parade.

Downtown Holland

by basstbn

We drove around downtown Holland a little bit, but didn't think we had time to get out and walk. In retrospect, I wish we had. This is a neat downtown. Combine Victorian era architecture with lots of neat shops, art galleries, and unique restaurants and coffee houses, and you have a downtown that wins prizes from the people who award those sort of things.

Worth a visit.

See the Herd of Buffalo

by no1birdlady

At the back of Veldheer Tulip Farm are two pastures where they have 2 herds of buffalo. In one pasture there were 15 juvenile buffalo. In the other pasture were 12 adults and one female with a baby. As I have mentioned on my home page, I'm a bird watcher so I had my binoculars with me. There were sparrows around the fence and one was a White-crowned Sparrow which is a bird I had never seen before in Michigan.
