The Netherlands is such a manageably small country that there's practically no excuse not to explore a little farther afield. And the payoff is immense, for just a short excursion can bring you to the Holland of your dreams: castles, harbor resorts, folkloric villages framed in lace, "the cleanest town in all the Netherlands," and, of course, the postcard-perfect tulip fields of the
Keukenhof. Thanks to Amsterdam's great transport connections, many of these day trips are very accessible.
