We'll take a ride on the unique sand dunes that line Lake Michigan's eastern shore. Our guide will discuss the history of the town, how the sand dunes formed over the years and of course provide an exciting (but safe!) ride. Tonight after both groups arrive in Holland, we will unpack our bags for the next few days and partake in a memorable dinner in downtown Holland.
