    Veldheer Tulip Gardens - out of season

    by basstbn Written Jul 13, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a $6 fee to tour this garden. And it doesn't appear to be that big! We arrived in June when very few tulips were still in bloom, so passed on this "opportunity."

    Unique Suggestions: The DeKlomp Wooden Shoe and Delft Factory are right next door, that's a little bit of a trap too, but not as bad. And if you're an avid gardener, Veldheer's garden center shop has items of interest.

    Fun Alternatives: Spend more time at Windmill Island or the Holland State Park.

    Sub shop downtown

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Don't go here. Its got cocky teenagers working behind the counter and no one ever taught them that if you offer a roast beef sub, its needs to have roast beef on it. Or was that paper-thin slice of brown really a piece of roast beef?

    Unique Suggestions: Go hungry.

    Fun Alternatives: Any other restaurant in town.

    Dutch Village

    by meteorologist1 Updated Sep 12, 2004

    The Dutch Village is really not worth the $8.00 admission. It was smaller than I expected. Another thing is that the Dutch Village is set in a pretty Americanized location. It is located right next to U.S. Highway 31, and across that highway you'll see a Wal-Mart supercenter. On the other side of the village is a shopping outlet (outlet stores). So it gives you a feeling that you are still in America. But still, this is one of Holland, Michigan's main attractions. If you are not going to visit Dutch Village, there are not many other choices. Also, the Dutch shops are wonderful here.

    Holland State Park is not the best place to go to see the beach. It is mostly only good for people watching. Better choices are tunnel park or Saugatuck Dunes State Park which have lower entrance fees and more scenery.

    Wooden Shoe Factory is generally a waste of time. If you want wooden shoes or wish to see how they are made you would be better off going to see Dutch Village or Windmill Island. Both places are much more interesting and the items to buy are much nicer quality.
