|The "Tulip Time Festival" ended 2 days before our arrival. Which was great for us. |
The tulips were still at peak but most of the tourist were gone
|You can follow the "Tulip Trail" for miles through the town. |
The town says the there are 6 million tulips in the town. That is six for each tourist.
|Miles of streets have tulips planted in boulevards like this or on both sides of the street in some neighborhoods.|

|Lots of campsites at this park. There is a campground at the beach and one further inland.|
|We stayed at the Oak Grove Campground Resort, a very nice RV Park. It is about 5 miles from downtown Holland.|
It is on the bike path that connects to other bike paths.
A short bike ride to Holland State Park along beautiful Ottawa Beach Road
|Guest facilities at Oak Grove.|
A visit to Holland Michigan is well worth it. We came, fortuitously, at just the right time, immediately after Tulip Time Festival.
