GLCT Travel Tip: Tulip Time Festival, Holland, MI, 7-14 May

This somewhat sleepy resort town (although also the headquarters for some major companies) springs to life this weekend for the Tulip Time Festival. The final parade is this Saturday, 14 May, at 2:00 pm ET, and is on 8th Street from Columbia Avenue to Van Raalte, then turns south to 24th Street. Attractions include: Holland Museum, New Holland Brewing Company, Cappon House Museum, Windmill Island Gardens, Nelis' Dutch Village, and Veldheer Tulip Gardens. All but the Veldheer Tulip Gardens are near downtown. While Amtrak does serve Holland, the 370/371-Pere Marquette Line has VERY limited service with only one round trip train per day. A limited number of hotels are located in downtown Holland for overnight guests.
