You’re craving: The whimsy of a blossoming tulip field in the Netherlands
Try: Holland, Michigan. This Midwest city didn’t just transport its Dutch name to the States—it also imported (then-exorbitantly priced) tulips. Each spring, Holland residents celebrate their European roots with an eight-day Tulip Time Festival. The largest such fest in the U.S., it features parades, concerts, traditional klompen dancing, craft fairs, fireworks, and—oh, yeah—thousands upon thousands of tulips lined along the streets and in special gardens for touring.
