I feel like I asked this before, but can't find it in my topics sections, so...
I'm finalizing dates for next April. We will be arriving in AMS on Apr 14, staying for 5 nights, then onto somewhere else in the Netherlands (NL) for 3 nights before going to Belgium (most likely Ghent). This will be our first time in NL.
So trying to figure what would be a good place for 3 nights - don't really want to move around, but we could perhaps do two nights in one spot and 1 night closer to Belgium. Not sure about renting a car (haven't had that discussion yet with hubby) so good links to public transportation - preferably trains - is important. Somewhere not really far away from getting to Belgium/Ghent.
What would I like? Windmills. Tulips. Scenery. Gouda cheese (maybe Gouda, South Holland?! lol). Beautiful photo ops. Keeping in mind April weather.
Ideally, I'd love for us to have a car for a few days to travel out into the countryside, but not sure if hubby will go for that. I am planning to pick up Rick's book (well, I'm hoping Santa will give me one for Xmas). EDIT - hubby is open to renting a car for our few days outside AMS.
So just hoping for a few places for me to research.
