May 4-6, 2015
Join us as we travel to Holland, Michigan to see nearly 4.5 million tulips that have been planted and are ready to burst forth in bloom this spring. We will enjoy the rich history and heritage of this beautiful city along the coast of Lake Michigan!
We will explore and see all that the Tulip Festival has to offer, including the beautiful Windmill Island Gardens where we can explore 36 acres of tulip gardens and quaint shops. Then we will enjoy high-energy festival favorite, the New Odyssey Dinner Show, a versatile and funny performance by three men on 30 different musical instruments!
Rise and shine the next day to have a local, costumed expert guide us around town on the bus to describe the historic parts of Holland. Make sure to bring your camera along. After lunch, we are off to the Modern Delft Art Class where we will have artist Carolyn Stich teach us how to create a modern Delft style souvenir piece to take home (everyone can do this). Then we are off to a lovely dinner and a show from America’s Got Talent magician and illusionist, Jay Mattioli.
We are not done yet. The next day, we still have more to see and do. Going to Holland would not be complete without a visit to the Cappon House and Settlers House. It is the history of America’s Holland from the early settlement of the “kolonie” to the thriving city of today. We will also visit the Holland Museum, home to one of the best collections of Dutch Masters paintings in the United States. After lunch, we will make just one more stop before we head home to the famed Veldheer’s Tulip Farm, DeKlomp Wooden Shoe & Delft Factory where we can enjoy the beautiful flowers once more and one last time to grab a souvenir.
