Our visit to Big Red turned out to be anything but ideal. The first way we had looked up to see it turned out to be private property, and we had to turn around to see it from the other side. By the time we got to the beach where we could see the lighthouse, I saw there was a massive storm coming our way (with hail), so we had about five minutes to enjoy the view and take photos. Even so, we still had to pull off on the side of the road before we got to Grand Haven because the storm was so bad. Thankfully, it all worked out, and we got to see a cute lighthouse in the process!
We would love to come back to Holland, Michigan someday to see more of the city, especially the Dutch influences. Holland has the only authentic Dutch windmill operating in the United States, and it would be fun to go up to the top. Nelis’ Dutch Village looks interesting, and I would also love to see the tulips at Veldheer Tulip Gardens.
