Ok everyone I am headed on vacation in just alittle more then a month. I am headed to Holland this year for vacation and was wondering of anyone has been there and what things one would recommend seeing while there. Right now it looks like I will be there for about 10 days and all start off in the Aalsmeer( Amsterdamn ) area.

Check out a cheese maker and wooden shoe maker. http://www.cheesefarms.com/en/surrounding-area/ also if the flower museum is open definitely check that out and also you cannot miss the Anne Frank house and the Van Gogh museum the lines are long but they move rather quickly. The cheese farms on that website are not the ones I went to but I can’t remember the names of the one I went to.

Edit: www.Claramaria.nl is the farm I went to. They are very nice and they have a cheese called Farmers Flame that is amazing.

Thanks, the Anne Frank house and the Van Gogh museum were two of the places I had already decided that I would visit. I was not aware of all the cheese farms and shoe makers but will definitely have to check out some of them.

If you like looking at military things, the Overloon war museum is very interesting to see. All of the writing is in Dutch but it’s worth a trip.
