Welcome to Holland!

When you say hello to western Michigan, you are also saying hello to miles of beautiful beaches along Lake Michigan and endless trails throughout the dunes for scenic hikes. You say hello to coffee shops, breweries, lighthouses and trolley rides. You say hello to small towns and cities where around every corner is a new family tradition waiting to be experienced. All of this and more are waiting in Holland, just 45 minutes from the Muskegon Lake Express Terminal!

  2. Feel as if you have escaped to the Netherlands when you take a tour of the Windmill Island Gardens! See a 250 year-old working Dutch windmill in the middle of a sea of flowers, canals and picnic areas! If you visit in spring, do not miss tulip time!
  3. The Dutch culture is easy to immerse yourself in in Holland. Visit the Holland Museum to get a glimpse of its rich history. Go to Nelis’ Dutch Village, listen to an antique Amsterdam street organ while the kids enjoy a Dutch Carousel and eat at the Windmill Restaurant or Wooden Shoe Restaurant to feel the culture of the city!
