Summer is a great season to visit Holland! Downtown Holland comes alive each Thursday night in the summer with our Street Performers Series. We have free waterfront concerts in the park on Fridays and free organ concerts on Wednesdays. Outdoor recreation abounds with boating, fishing, and water sports in Lake Michigan and Lake Macatawa, dune climbing and trail hiking, and miles of bike paths all throughout the city and surrounding townships. And of course there are the gorgeous Lake Michigan beaches of Holland State Park and Tunnel Park.
