Here’s what Fox news had to say about Holland:
Holland, Mich. (Little Holland)
Get your wooden clogs out of the closet while visiting this Michigan town with a rich Dutch heritage. Don’t own a pair? No problem. Make sure you visit the DeKlomp Wooden Shoe & Delft Factory where you can watch the wooden shoes being carved. Brush up on your Dutch history and visit the Historic Dutch Trade Fair at Windmill Island Gardens where kids will enjoy watching grain turn into flour in the typical Dutch fashion, via windmill. Kids will also love learning traditional Dutch dances and feeding farm animals at Nelis’ Dutch Village.
For a slightly more adult activity, take a tour at the New Holland Brewing Company and Distillery for just $10 and $5 dollars respectively. And try to visit Holland during the Tulip Festival, when the town is in full bloom with well over 6 million tulips. The upcoming festival will be held from May 5-12, 2012.
