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.

I grew up just a couple towns north of holland, so trips to Dutch Village were a special treat for me and my siblings! Although many things are the same as they were long ago, they have been kept up very well! Along with the 'old', they've added a bunch of new attractions, and are continually looking for ways to...

We took 3 of our grandchildren here (ages 5, 3, and 2) and spent a few hours walking around feeding the goats, pigs, llama, and chickens. The highlight was definitely the animals, but they all loved the ferris wheel and the "swings". We will make this an annual tradition!

This wasn't a planned visit, but we were vacationing in Grand Haven. Nelis' Dutch Village is a very quaint little village with lots a history and fun for the kids.

Kind of a disappointment for the price. Nice gift shop and enjoyed the high school dancers. Overall, it seems a bit tired. Could use some updating.

We were surprised the NDV was not out in the country. It was actually right by the highway sharing a parking lot with an outlet mall. Inside, it was quite charming. Highlights: Kid 2: the swing ride. Kid 1: the Petting zoo. Me: dressing up (!!!) and brushing goats! Hubs: wooden shoe carving demo. This impressive little amusement park was... More

I used to be stuffy about doing things like this on trips, but sometimes it's fun to just be a tourist! This fits the bill perfectly. Be sure to go on the windmill tour, the history of the Holland, Michigan windmill is very interesting. There is even a store where you can buy mill-ground flour and wooden shoes.

Kids will love this park, but adults can find it enjoyable also. We enjoyed seeing the animals at this park, and the rides are very tame - no thrill rides. It took us about 2 hours to go through this park, but families with kids will probably want to allow more time. It was an enjoyable way to spend part... More

A great visit to a wonderful family friendly vacation spot. If you can't make it to Europe this is the next best thing.

My 9 year old really enjoyed this place. There were some rides there that she was able to enjoy. We are a family that loves animals. We really enjoyed the petting zoo. Me being a lover of goats I was overjoyed that you could put a leash on them and walk them around. We did not eat here so not... More
