Holland Charter Township Reviews
Rating 3.82 out of 5 76 reviews
Although I enjoy how closely knit the community is, I would like to see more inclusion of minority groups, such as the LGBTQ+ community and PoC. As a primarily white society, I believe we have the ability to use our voices to make change for minorities.
I like that I am close to the beach and the dog park and my neighbors are really nice. I am close to my church and stores. I also like that the quietness of the night. I feel the crime rate is low and I am close to my voting place.
Holland has a lot of neat shops and boutiques in the downtown area. There are also other areas for shopping and eating. The beaches here are lovely and a lot of people look forward to celebrating the Tulip Time Festival.
I like holland. It is a small town, with a wonderful beach. While there are not that many things to do in the winter, there are lots of activities in the warmer months. There are often fun things downtown. Also, the music opportunities are great to attend.
We have beautiful beach fronts and a quaint downtown area. When I'm away from Holland, I always find myself missing it. I see more development in Holland's future as it continues to grow into a bigger, bustling city.
Holland, Michigan, rated 2010's third happiest city, is a great place to live! The area itself has been on a steady rise, economically and culturally. As time goes on, the diversity is growing, and cultural acceptance follows. From the beach, to Tulip Time, to Christmas plays, to high school football, there is never a dull moment in this town. Even coming from a kid who's family didn't engage in those activities, it wasn't hard for me to independently get there. Hollanders and Zealanders are some of the nicest, gentle people you will ever meet. It has the quaint feel of a small town, with the population of a minor city, and the rich history of Dutch immigrants. Just watch out, there's always construction on some main street downtown!
its ok because there is a good amount of crime safety
i think it is great because it is a peaceful neighborhood
The area is extremely safe. You never have to worry about your belongings or your own safety.
I could see my future here but, I not one who wants to stick around here longer then i need to.
It is a nice clean subdivsion
It is a family friendly community.
I feel very safe in my community.
I enjoy the town I live in because of the closeness and camaraderie of everyone knowing everyone. But because of the mainly white, conservative views of the population I feel extremely out of place because of my lack of a religious faith or upbringing. There is very little violent crime but the school I attended was essentially the "white" school while across in Holland was West Ottawa which was much larger and culturally diverse. Overall it's a decent place to live though if you want a small town family oriented place to live.
The houses on the market don't stay very long. It has been difficult to find what we want in our price range. Houses here are either marked too high because no one wants to sell and too few houses or they are so gross no one wants to buy them.
Life here is difficult; the upper crust is very clicky and not nice at all. I tried to get through it, but when my son graduates, hubby and I will probably look at other communities along the lake shore. It has not been a very pleasant experience.
We've not had any issues where we live, however, in other areas of Holland there has been vandalism and graffiti.
