It’s both easy to see and hard to imagine that Holland, Michigan has its roots in the most solemn aspects of Dutch culture. Much of the religious conviction remains, as does the traditional Dutch architecture, and ambiance. But like its pioneers, Holland has reinvented itself without letting go of its heritage. Today’s Holland is alive with diverse cultures, whose influence has created an exciting, thriving community that has never lost its charm or affability.
Long time residents can’t imagine living anywhere else; newcomers wonder why they didn’t move here sooner. And our visitors delight in the vast array of recreational activities, visual and performing arts, Dutch attractions, magnificent beaches and an award-winning downtown with exceptional shops, galleries, and eateries. There’s even a snowmelt system that keeps the downtown streets and sidewalks dry in winter. Click on the links below to find out more about our past, present, and your future with Holland.
