Need advice for Amsterdam day trip to quaint town with biking/windmills

Jump to last reply

Our group consists of 2 families with 4 children ranging in age from 12-18. Next May (end of month) we have 2 1/2 days in Amsterdam and would like to spend a good portion of one of those days on a day trip out of the City. In a perfect world I'd be looking for something fairly close (1hr train?) that has the following qualities:
- quaint, picturesque town
- great paths to walk along water
- biking paths for a several hour ride with windmills (with rental bikes)

Maybe all of that doesn't exist in the same spot...but I'm aiming high. We're just looking for a way to get out of the big city see the countryside while the kids burn off some energy.

I've been reading about places like Broek in Waterland, Zaanse Schans, Spaarndam, etc but would love some input from someone with personal experience.

Flowers would be nice as well but we're realizing that we're probably several weeks past the tulip season.
