flackbait, I used to live in Michigan. I've always heard Holland is a pretty cool town, at least nice looking because of its ancestry. I dunno though, never went there.
I grew up in Northville, Michigan. I'd have to say the one thing it is famous for (in the region, too small to be nationally known) is its Victorian architecture. There's a lot of very well-preserved homes from the 19th century and early 20th century with some classical designs. Some very unique and cool looking houses. My house was more of the 50s style generic, but because of the up-and-coming nature of the neighborhood, tons of the houses had additions (including ours, which had an extra family room, bathroom, and hot tub room added onto the back), and everyone had lots of colors. The age of the area meant everything was integrated into the land a little more, and there were a lot of trees.
Another interesting factor to the area was how far we were from major interstates. Just luck I guess.
The combination of these two factors means most of the suburbs I see now, especially the newer ones, seem exceedingly ugly and poorly designed.
Related to the Victorian stuff, every year there was a Victorian festival in the center of the old part of town. There was a man who was basically a snake oil salesman, claiming to sell his magical Roundies (actually M&Ms) that would cure anything. There was also art, trinkets, etc, and lots of food. Fun stuff. We'd go as part of school, once or twice dressed in Victorian clothes.
Henry Ford once lived there. He married his wife there.
Aside from that... The city has the first harness horse racing track in the state. Wow. I've never been in it.
