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.

I will say it is totally authentic. We spent an entire day there and thoroughly enjoyed every minute, from the demo on making wooden shoes to the High School students demonstration of some Dutch dances.

Priced well and a fun place for the kids. My girls are 4&3 and loved it. We spent an hour here and it was enough to see everything and do the two rides.

Visited on a hot late summer day. Would be best for pre-teen children. Some of the attractions and staff were looking a bit tired at the end of the summer vacation season.

Our party of 4 included 1 child, 1 senior and 2 adults, and it was $46 to get in. Pretty steep. Little kids will enjoy the petting zoo and holding a bunny. There's a few rides (carousel, ferris wheel, swings, miniature zip line). The look...More

We went last year and returned this year. It looked like the entrance had been spruced up and the zip line was functioning this year. Kids liked holding the bunnies in baskets and feeding the animals--so bring a few dollar bills for buying ice cream...More

Very nice, but geared towards small children. Visited with a 30 year old and while it was a nice place, I would not recommend for adults without children.

This place is really fun for kids. The little village, old fashioned rides and activities are charming and lots of fun. The restaurant had lovely, authentic Dutch treats. Our 6 year old grandson had a great time and so did we.
