Pella Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 38 photos
After a trip from Kansas City to Des Moines we sat in our hotel room going over some booklets we took from the visitor center. I did see something about a mill will getting the leaflet at the center but didn't pay that much attention at that moment.
But now in the comfort of our hotel room i looked at it again. It wasn't just a miniature mill but a village that has been dutchmerized completly...
It only was about an hour drive from our hotel so we decided would could ad some more miles to this day and drove off to Pella.

Strange to see that so far away from home there are dutch names at the shops and trucks. I didn't find any dutch speaking people but did see a lot of dutch names and food overhere.
- Pros:Hey where else can you get Bokkepootjes in the states ?
- Cons:No "kroketten"
- In a nutshell:If you get homesick just go to Pella for a few hours...
This restaurant is located in the Royal Amsterdam hotel in downtown Pella... We hoped to find some dutch food over here... more travel advice
In the many shops in Pella you can find "delfts blue" and dutch treats.... They have windmills, tiles, Amsterdam Canal... more travel advice
