Michigan for Vacation - WOW!

Sorry I've been MIA for a while!  My family took their MUCH NEEDED, first ever official family vacation over the 4th of July week.  My husband & I have been married for 11 years, but have never taken an official family vacation with our kids where we weren't visiting family, attending a wedding, etc. - so we figured it was about time.  The past two summers we've visited Michigan for a seminar for my husband's work, and have come to LOVE it, so we decided to make that our summer vacation spot this year.

WE LOVE MICHIGAN!  Wow!  We've decided it is one of the my underrated places in the country - and we've been to all but a few states, so that is saying something!  If you haven't seen any already, check out their PURE MICHIGAN ads - they worked for us! 

We decided to go to Holland, Michigan for a beach vacation - yes, if you haven't been there you heard me correctly - BEACH.  Michigan has phenomenal beaches - some big (on Lake Michigan), some smaller.  They have white sand, aren't too over crowded, and are fantastic.  Holland is only about 4 hours drive from where we live in Indiana, so it was a perfect spot that was "away" without having to drive so far that we were grumpy when we got there. 

Holland, MI is an adorable, quaint, family-friendly town.  We went to the beach, go cart racing, jumping on bouncies, saw Madagascar 3 (very cute), got ice cream, saw street performers, went twice to their awesome Farmer's Market... there was sooo much to do!  There are fantastic bike/walking/running paths everywhere.... if you are considering a family vacation, I highly recommend Holland, Michigan!
