Windmills and Wooden Shoes

Last day for the Netherlands, so here are a few more sights to see if you happen to head that way:

Windmills and Wooden Shoes – No trip to the Netherlands would be complete without these! Try a tour of Zaanse Schans, a popular tourist area in North Holland. There you’ll find the famous windmills, wooden houses and old-fashioned stores, including a wooden clog factory. From there you can drive (or your tour might take you) to the fishing villages of Marken and Volendam. Along the way, stop at a cheese factory, where Dutch cheeses are still being made in the traditional way.
Erasmus Bridge – This amazing architectural delight is shaped like a harp and soars over Europe’s largest harbor in Rotterdam, linking the northern and southern halves of the city. Beautiful by day and dazzling by night!
