What comes to mind (other than Amsterdam) when you think of Holland? This past summer I traveled with my sisters, Opa, and Oma* to our family’s home, and was able to experience my heritage and the place they had emigrated from; Oma arrived in the U.S. in 1949, and Opa came in 1972. We spent our days biking to surrounding towns and lesser-known villages. When biking wasn’t an option, we opted for the tram, which got us from one point to the next in little to no time. Of course, we made a day out of visiting Amsterdam, but read on to find some hidden gems if you’d like to experience more out of your trip through the Netherlands.
