50 Instant Itineraries
In 1964, the city of Holland (30 miles southwest of Grand Rapids) purchased what turned out to be the best landmark this Michigan town of 34,000 could hope for: a Dutch windmill built in 1761. Today, visitors can watch it grind grain into flour at Windmill Island Gardens. Nearby, re-created Dutch shops sell wooden shoes and delftware, as well as imported foods. And head just 8 miles out of town to enjoy the golden sand beach at Holland State Park.
