Imagine yourself strolling along a tulip-lined walkway, in a town of small shops, restaurants and tucked-in canals.  In the distance, windmills turn above fields shimmering with tulips, and nearby bike paths lead along open water.  Suddenly, you hear Dutch folk music, and a troupe of dancers in historic dress -- right down to the wooden clogs -- begin a dance.  Surely, you must be in the Netherlands.  Close enough:  Welcome to Tulip Time in Holland, Michigan!

A smaller but also

fascinating cultural group is

Indonesian Dutch Americans,

who trace their heritage to the culture formed when Indonesia was a part of the Dutch East Indies.
