My next stop was Holland, Michigan which was so named because it was originally settled by Dutch immigrants. I've been to the town before but I was there during the tulip festival and didn't want to venture over to the lighthouse. So I stopped there to get a picture of the lighthouse.
The first lighthouse was built in Holland in 1870. In 1880, a new light was built there. In 1907, the lighthouse was built into its final structure. Because of it's color it has the nickname of "Big Red".
The light stands at a height of 32 feet. The structure is a nice shade of red, although you can't see that too well because of the angle of the camera relative to the sun.

Looking out a little further.
This is looking at the lighthouse from the beach. Here you can see the nice vibrant red of the lighthouse.
