Netherlands

For such a small country – only slightly larger than West Virginia! – the Netherlands is packed with a variety of experiences to try and it starts with its capital city, Amsterdam. This famed city is synonymous with artistic heritage and exquisite architecture that harkens back to the 17th century when the Dutch Golden Age introduced us to artistic masters such as Rembrandt, Vermeer and Van Gogh. To enjoy them to the fullest, don’t miss the Van Gogh Museum or Rijksmuseum. Also while in Amsterdam tour the Anne Frank House where the famed teen Jewish diarist hid with her family in World War II. Her inspirational story has touched hearts worldwide and the opportunity to view for yourself her secret annex is something you’ll never forget.

When it’s time for a break, nearby Vondelpark is the perfect place to go. Cycling is a huge part of Amsterdam’s culture and with 120 acres of beautiful landscape to enjoy, Vondelpark is an excellent place to take advantage of the activity’s popularity. Some of the best foods the Netherlands has to offer are right here, too. Cafes and coffee shops are found everwhere and offer excellent bitterballen, stroopwafel, raw herring, kibbeling, and poffertjes.

As lovely as Amsterdam is, there is much more to enjoy in the Netherlands. Visitors delight in spending time in the Hague, find the cosmopolitan center of government and home to more excellent museums. Also not far is the popular Scheveningen beach resort just around the corner. And if you’re a fan of living history, Zaanse Schans, a residential area that has brought to life the 18th and 19th centuries with working windmills, barns, and workshops, might be just the place for you. Make sure you bring your camera so you’ll have a record of the gorgeous tulip fields you’ll be passing.
