Tulip City

Place - What is it like in Holland?

Holland is a great place to live. Although it is a big city, I still love it. It has a awesome downtown, it has a range of shops to go to and good places to eat. It has a college called Hope. They have many little play parks and places to visit, like the dutch village, it has a place for kids to play, little outlet stores, and a movie theater & gym. One of the many fantastic things to do is Tulip Time! This is when Holland has tulips all around. People walk around and look at them. This is also a time to celebrate a big part of Holland, the Dutch! They show dutch dancing and other great activities. It also has a lot of beach area were you can swim and play. You ask where this wonderful place is, well go look!!!

A lot people like Holland because of the activities. There are a lot of job offerings around Holland. There are a lot of factory's, also car parts and office furniture are a big manufacturer there. Grocery stores and medical departments are another great job offering in Holland. It is also a great vacation place because of the things to do like the beach and downtown. A couple downsides are the rowdy college kids and some gangs. If you don't like city life, like apartment complexes and sub-divisions, Holland isn't the place for you.
