All About Holland 2023

Historic and hip, downtown Holland is a year-round destination begging to be explored. Buzzing with sidewalk cafes, live music, and coffee shops, downtown is the place to both meet up with old friends and to make new ones. Named the nation’s “Coolest Downtown” by America in Bloom, it’s f illed with beautifully restored turn-of-the-20th-century architecture, tree-lined streets, and whimsical pocket parks. Wander at your own pace, and you’ll discover over 100 breweries, boutiques, and bistros found nowhere else. Even more special about our downtown is how both its appearance and activities change with each season. In springtime, it’s tulips and parades and in summer, perennials and street performers. Autumn brings corn stalks and pumpkin carvers, while winter shines with Sinterklaas and ice sculptures. Designed for our visitors’ enjoyment, downtown’s seasonally heated cobblestones lead the way to delightful destinations. Hope College’s historic campus, an outstanding farmers market, and a centuries-old authentic Dutch windmill are but a short stroll

away. A social district encourages beverage connoisseurs to roam, contemplating sculptures and captivating flower beds with an ale or artisan cocktail in hand. A walk to the Holland Civic Center Place can bring you to a nationally acclaimed entertainer, sporting event, or even a Toy Haven show. A seat near our outdoor brick f ireplace offers a great place to rest and sample some freshly made fudge, and our splash pad is sure to bring smiles to parents watching their kids cool off on a hot summer day. With three luxury hotels just steps away from such delights, downtown is ready to make your stay a memorable one.

Don’t forget your four-legged friends -- dogs are welcome to join in the fun, both in parks and in many downtown shops (though the Michigan Health Code prohibits Fido from dining inside, ask at a sidewalk café if your beloved companion can accompany you for outdoor dining).
