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.

This attraction is very much a summer venue. My wife and I visited off-season, but still enjoyed the open gift shop very much. This attraction is probably most meaningful to people with a Dutch heritage.

Wonderful tulips in every color and shape you can imagine. Highly recommended and a great town to visit when the tulips are in full bloom.

Fun for the whole family. Feeding the goats was a highlight, as well as sampling the cheeses. Glad to see my childhood memories are well-preserved.
