Spring in the Midwest and Weekend Road Trips

Spring is arriving in the Midwest. The Lake is
no longer frozen, the snow from the Blizzard is almost gone and my beagle has started barking at the ducks and chasing rabbits again. I love to take road trips at this time of year. It's nice to get out of the City and revisit some favorite places like Kohler Wisconsin and the Southwest coast of Michigan. Last weekend I went to Michigan with some friends for a weekend of antiquing, wine drinking and walks on the then still frozen beach.

A spring tradition in Holland Michigan is the Tulip Time Festival. A celebration of Dutch culture, spring and of course the beautiful tulips. This year's festival will be held from May 7-14 and if you live in the Midwest or are planning a trip, it's worth a visit. The festival includes parades, dance, concerts, theater, wooden shoes and wonderful food and flowers. For a glimpse at the 2008 festival highlights watch the video below.
