HOLLAND, Mich. (AP) -- A scene near West Michigan's Holland State Park made the cover of the state's new travel and tourism guide, but an official says the scenery didn't get proper credit.

The spring/summer issue of the "Pure Michigan" guide identified the location of a photo showing three men on stand-up paddleboards as being St. Joseph when it actually is the Lake Michigan shoreline just north of Holland State Park.

Regardless of the credit, Sally Laukitis, executive director of the Holland Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, says the cover spot reaffirms Holland as a hot tourism spot.

Laukitis says the error was corrected online.
A message seeking comment was sent Friday by The Associated Press to a spokeswoman for the state's "Pure Michigan" tourism effort.
