Welkom to Holland!

July 26th, 2009 . by Melissa

This weekend we made the 3.5 hour journey up to Holland, Michigan with our friends, the Taylors. It was a very interesting place! There was a lot of Dutch influence, hence the name. Amazingly enough, our hotel was right next to an outlet mall. So we got our fix of shopping in and then spent the rest of Saturday experiencing Dutch culture and then exploring the shoreline of Lake Michigan. We were all surprised when Lake Michigan ended up having a very real beach, with waves and sea gulls, and way too many people. The waters were cold but everyone else got fully in. We even built a sand castle. It was a really nice weekend, I would definitely go back to Holland but maybe next time in May for their tulip festival.
