Overview

A visit to Nelis' Dutch Village is like a step back into the Netherlands of over 100 years ago on a day when a festival came to town. Watch old Dutch craft demonstrations and Dutch klompen dancers. Taste 22 kinds of Dutch cheeses, beautiful Dutch architecture and listen to the Golden Angel street organ. Includes unlimited rides on the Ferris wheel, carousel and Dutch chair swing ride. Unique shopping, Dutch cafe and pub, and fudge and ice cream.

Great close parking & not crowded at all. Staff were super friendly. We came in the morning, left for the parade and came back. Still not crowded (unlike the town of Holland during the parade). The petting zoo was of special interest to our grandkids....More

Very nice place to visit. All attractions are good for kids and our kids certainly enjoyed them. I cought up on my native dutch a little bit since the operator from the wheel knew dutch since he immigrated from the Netherlands in 1956.

Wow what a great place to take a family. We took 6 kids (14, 12, 10, 3, 3, and 1) They all had a blast. Great prices and a great place to spend the day. I would go back again in a heartbeat.
