You could easily spend a day or a weekend just in Holland, MI. We're particular fans of New Holland Brewery/Distillery and Salt of the Earth in nearby Fennville, and if you're a tulip lover, this will be heaven for you.
A lovely independent bookstore with a HUGE magazine selection.
For me, New Holland is the reason to make the trip to Holland. Tons of great beers, a whole line of spirits (get the Beer Barrel whiskey and the Hopquila) and a great atmosphere.
If you love old fashioned candy stores, there's no better place in Michigan than the Holland Peanut Store
This remarkable huge department store has absolutely everything housewares-related that any human could possibly need.
Start your dutch day here! Make sure to try the rolled up pancakes with jam.
Experience the taste (and feel) of being in an alpine village, at least for breakfast. Their pancakes are a must-try.
A great place to stop in for a whiskey or a glass of wine - amazing selection!
An adorable toy store with a great selection of board games, craft sets and legos.
The local history museum, housed in an imposing stone edifice.
It's only fun for a few weeks in may, but for those weeks there are over 5 MILLION tulips blooming on this farm.
A fake dutch village, with tons of windmills, wooden shoes and all other things kitchy and dutch.
It wouldn't be Holland (Europe or Michigan) without some wooden shoes! Watch them being made and buy your own.
If it's made of logs or looks like it belongs in a cabin, this is the store. Tons of rugs, knickknacks, candles and more!
The best of local eating in a tiny town in Michigan. Salt of the Earth is worth the drive.
I didn't know there were this many varieties of olive oil. A gem for gourmets!
This place is pretty amazing. A huge windmill, a giant Dutch Garden, an old inn and a hand-carved carousel.
The spice mixes here are amazing. I particularly like the greek salad mix.
If you have a hankering for a slice of homemade pie, this is the place.
