Holland MI We spent Saturday being tourists with the Moores and Bevingtons at Nelis' Dutch Village in Holland, MI.  From their website...the theme park is a step back into the Netherlands of over 100 years ago, complete with authentic Dutch architecture, flowering gardens, canals and windmills. The history and culture of the Dutch come to life as our associates, dressed in native costumes including wooden shoes, demonstrate the crafts and life in those olden days.  Dutch Village
