Tulip Time Festival: Windmill Island Gardens in Holland Michigan

The tulips were just beginning to bloom when I visited Windmill Island Gardens in Holland Michigan during Tulip Time Festival. I arrived right when the ticket booth opened to get there before the crowds.  I would recommend arriving right when the garden opens to beat the crowds during Tulip Time Festival and to find parking. During Tulip Time Festival the garden opens a half hour earlier.
 Windmill Island Gardens is home to de Zwaan windmill, the last mill allowed to be transported from the Netherlands. Every 15 minutes they had guided tours of the Windmill. 

The grounds have over 100,000 tulip bulbs planted, but many were not in full bloom when I was visiting. It still was a beautiful site to see the tulips sprung up and just beginning to color the gardens in vibrant arrays. 

The video from my trip is also on YouTube

Denver: Weekend Trip

A weekend getaway to Denver is only a 2.5 hour flight from Chicago. With only two days for adventures, I tried to jam pack as much as I could into the short time frame. There is so much to do in the downtown area with loads of museums and restaurants. I stayed at the Hyatt Regency Denver in the Central Business District which had amazing views of the mountains. The hotel was also in a great location to get around downtown Denver and walking distance from the museums. 





Below are the pictures and descriptions from my adventures:



Day 1


Civic Center Park







Denver Art Museum 












Edgar Degas Exhibit 











Byers-Evans House 





Day 2


Denver Botanic Garden
