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. Demonstrations and performances; tastes, sight and sounds; and something to interest all ages. Unique shopping too.

My husband and I were in town visiting and stopped by the Dutch Village for a visit. Since it's past the summer season, most of the village wasn't open (we came during the week). But we were able to walk around the shop. They had a nice variety of items--home decor, ornaments, candles, wooden shoes, food items and more. The... More

We are from Ohio. We stopped there to get tulip bulbs last fall. I had orders from multiple co-workers. They only had a small display of bulbs available and we very rude about it when I asked where the rest of the ones advertised were.

If you've never has Dutch licorice you might be in for a shock. Dutch licorice is extremely salty. Over powering. But try it and you just might like it. They also have less salty varieties. Be sure to get some stroud waffles. These are thin wafers with Carmel in between. A Dutch favorite. Then indulge on some ice cream.

We recently spent the day at Nelis' Dutch Village with our children and grandchildren. Everyone loved it. We had a great time. It was a perfect destination with 4 children, ages 3-12). They loved riding the amusement park rides, visiting the petting zoo, learning to dance and making their own cookies. A great time was had by all.

It is geared more towards children but as two adults we found it interesting and educational. Think the admission price was very high.

Nice place, truly feels like Amsterdam. Walking the goats was so fun and they have small fun rides for the little ones.

We kind of just stumbled across this gem while looking for windmill isle. Such a beautiful park. They were closed but we went through and got pictures. Can't wait to go back when they are open.

When my family went to the Dutch Village we enjoyed a lot of the activities! We really liked the zip line and farm animals! Seeing the "clogs" being made was also very cool. This is a fun a educational trip that we loved!!!

We visit Nelis' Dutch Village every time we come to Michigan. It is a family favorite. My husband lived in The Netherlands for 2 years and says that Nelis'Dutch Village fells like The Netherlands.
