  • Not to friendly if you don't look dutch

    by freedude Updated Oct 23, 2007

    Holland is a safe city in a very pretty part of the state. However, the culture does not lean toward the acceptance of people who do not reflect the same narrow minded views. Beware if you are a person of color. Many of the locals believe that most Hispanics are gang members, regardless of how you are dressed. This is a very narrow minded community who likes your tourist dollars but wants you to leave ASAP. If you are a non-minority you probably will never notice...but if are one, be prepared to be asked "When did you come to this country?"

    Though the town is generally safe everywhere, the 7-Eleven store and area around it between 16th and 18th Streets is not the best place to be at night. There have been numerous gang problems and many robberies there.
