Holland is a beautiful city that has a lot of tourist. There are festivals that highlight the cities rich history, the city is surrounded by beaches and parks. The atmosphere is crowded because of the tourist and festivals. My overall experience is good in Holland mi, I love it here

Mostly every busy street has a sidewalk for pedestrians. Also, bikers sometimes share the roads with other vehicles. The only time traffic will get bad in Holland is during Tulip Time and this is because many people head downtown to enjoy the fun with their family and friends.
There are plenty of emergency responders like police, ambulance, and firefighters that are always on duty. The public bus is not as popular in terms of usage and can be improved.
