Downtown Holland Michigan Vacation
This was another part of our trip to Holland Michigan. The reason I focused on the sidewalk is because it never gets salted, plowed or shoveled. A large portion of Holland has an underground water system that heats the sidewalks and streets in the winter which melts the snow.
I hope they realize there is a fire hydrant in there!
My husband and my mother in law checking things out while I take pictures.
Tulips were everywhere!
I found it so fascinating that the street lights hang by wires in the center of the road. Our street lights are on a pole at each corner of the streets.
We were told this was the place to eat and to plan on standing in line outside to get a seat. See the sign to the left of the door that says “Form Line Here”? We timed it perfectly and walked in with one couple in front of us. The food was amazing as well as the service.
I thought I would die laughing when my 94 year old mother in law ordered this, not realizing the size! This is even a bowl, it was huge and delicious she said. Needless to say she wasn’t able to eat the whole thing.
This was my husbands, keep in mind this is lunch!
This was my chicken salad with a slice of homemade bread. There must have been a quarter head of lettuce under there and it was the best chicken salad I have ever had.
They had windmill decorations since the restaurant was called the Windmill Restaurant.
I saved my favorite place for last! I have a story to tell you about this store. One of my followers commented on one of my “It’s Friday What’s For Dinner?” posts. He said he had cherry salsa with his meal. My mind was blown as I had never heard of cherry salsa but I knew I had to have some.
He told me to order it from Michigan so I looked it up on line. When I saw how much shipping was I said there is no way I am paying that. I was telling my husband about it and he said to find out how close the store is to Holland and maybe we can swing by and pick some up. The website said they had three locations with one in downtown Holland, it was fate.
Everything in the store was cherry! We spent $160.00 and so far everything is top of the line in quality and taste, and that salsa left me speechless. I think shipping would have been cheaper but look at all the goodies I wouldn’t have bought.
My husband and I decided it was a good thing this was hours away from our house or we may go broke!
