The world seems to be happy to travel again. Yes, there are hoops to jump through but with that said you still can enjoy a splendid vacation in the USA or abroad. Currently the prices are very reasonable with flights cheaper than I have seen in years. The only thing I will say is BE FLEXIBLE. The air travel is having hiccups periodically, but TRAVEL IS AN ADVENTURE so make it one and roll with the punches.
We invite you to join us this spring, May 6-12 2022, as we explore the vibrant spectacle of spring from Chicago, to the Great Lakes, and to the renown Mackinac Island. Spring is in the air and so are a plethora of colorful tulips surrounding the famous 240-year old “De Zwaan” windmill! The highlight of our travels includes the annual Tulip Festival in Holland, Michigan, steeped in the area’s rich Dutch heritage offering us the opportunity to visit Veldheer-DeKlomp Tulip Gardens, ablaze with acres of brilliant color in a Dutch setting without the long flight!
We will attend the Dutch Musiekparade featuring local and national marching bands, floats and Dutch Dancers! Step back in time as you travel by horse-drawn carriage around Mackinac Island. Sample fudge, explore history, visit a candle-making shop, and so much more. This is a small group experience, space is limited, reserve your spot before the holidays!
