The Netherlands Travel Guide

If you travel, you have most likely met a Dutch person. They are everywhere. And all of them are always the coolest, nicest, smartest person in the room. I know we’re not supposed to generalize and stereotype groups of people so I apologize, but I am sticking to this one.  Come visit the country that is clearly doing something right. Eat stroopwafels, visit “cafes” and see this fun loving, beautiful and interesting country.

When to go 

A mild climate makes it a good place to visit year round. Summer (June – August) is the busiest time of year but spring and fall offer equally nice weather with fewer crowds. Mid-April is the time to come to see the tulips in full bloom.
