Explore Lake Macatawa, Lake Michigan, and Holland State Park with bikes. On a recent early November weekend visit, we headed to Holland Michigan. We ventured to the downtown area and loved the mix of stores and restaurants including the public outdoor fireplaces - a very nice touch in the brisk fall air. What we liked most about our visit to Holland was our trek along the lakeshore which was majestic with the leaves turning colors and the vast lake view. I give the public officials and urban planners of Holland Michigan an A+ for scenic and well paved routes and maps. We explored the lakeshore by renting bikes, helmets, and locks from the friendly and knowledgeable folks at Cross Country Cycle - you cant beat the price for two bike rentals. We took our bikes from the their store and drove all the way to Mt. Pisgah while exploring the residential area along the lake. Lock up your bikes and hike to the highest point of Mt. Pisgah where you see the Big Red lighthouse and the vast American beauty of Lake Macatawa and Lake Michigan. After your hike, stop by Ottawa Beach Inn for a decent burger and beer or just warm up with a coffee and sandwich by their fireplace and leisurely watch the boats go by. If you drive, you can park at the lot near Black Lake Ave and Ottawa Beach Road. A Midwestern must go to attraction!
