Take A Virtual Tour Through A 6-Mile Stretch Of Tulip Lanes In Holland, Michigan
If you’ve ever explored the lakeside city of Holland during springtime, you know that its gorgeous tulips are nothing short of breathtaking. In fact, these vibrant blooms are so key to the culture of the area that they’ve inspired the famous Tulip Time Festival, which draws hundreds of thousands of visitors to West Michigan each year.
Unfortunately, the 2020 Tulip Time Festival has been canceled for the first time since the event was founded more than 90 years ago. While most of us won’t have the chance to enjoy Holland’s beloved springtime tradition this time around, we can be grateful for gorgeous photography and virtual tours from years past that allow us to appreciate the sights of the season from afar.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
If you find yourself longing for a dose of tulip-inspired beauty but can’t head to West Michigan for an in-person view, there’s reason celebrate: the City of Holland offers a virtual Tulip Lane tour via YouTube that allows viewers to enjoy the sights of spring along six miles of flower-dotted streets. While the video was released last May, it captures the splendor of Holland’s springtime season and offers a sense of hope during a difficult time.
