Indiana Dunes SP to Holland (MI)
After a brief visit to check out the shore area at Indiana Dunes to see where dunes meet Lake Michigan (looks very similar to where dunes meet ocean - LOTS of sand) we headed to check out some of Michigan's "Gold Coast" and Holland. The fall leaves, time change and apples for sale let us know we were getting close to home.
Holland turned out to be well worth the visit. We walked around Windmill Island to check out the replica Dutch village (their windmills were under reconstruction) and play at the great park. We also visited the super cute downtown area to pickup some killer fudge from Kilwins and some brilliant craft liquor from New Holland Brewery - the "Dragon's Milk" porter aged in bourbon barrels was incredible - before finding ourselves an awesome spot at Walmart. A Walmart that turned out to be right across the street from both the Dutch Village theme park (complete with rides) and a great flea market.
Holland: we will be back.
