Getting To Know Muskegon and Holland

Muskegon and Holland are beachfront towns on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan, where a 200-mile stretch of sandy beaches offers beautiful scenery and spectacular sunsets. The area was originally settled by the Ottawa and Pottawatomi nations then in the 19th century it attracted a large population of Dutch immigrants, whose influence can be seen in the De Zwaan historic windmill and yearly Tulip Time Festival. Today, this area is known for its towering dunes and beaches, its maritime museums, and colourful Dutch heritage.
