Making artisanal cheeses for 40 years now, they also offer cheese-making demos and tastings at their farms. And now, all their cheeses are completely vegetarian (no rennet). cheesefarms.com



Which other country’s biggest attraction is a flower? No, you have to come to Holland for that. The Keukenhof Garden, a day trip from Amsterdam, has 7 million tulips in spring, but in the north, you can see them blooming in glass houses all year. visitholland.nl

Want to see all of Holland but don’t have the time? Madurodam in The Hague is a miniature park boasting 1:25 scale model replicas of major Dutch monuments and cities. A not-for-profit, it is also a memorial to George Maduro, who fought the Nazis as a part of the Dutch resistance. madurodam.nl



Perhaps the biggest attraction at Holland’s largest theme park, Efteling, is the Fairytale Forest, home to 29 fairytale characters (the newest being Pinocchio), as well as the much-loved Fairytale Tree, whose branches and leaves flutter in the wind as it tells stories (and it’s learning English). Open year-round, Efteling offers some spectacular shows and a bunch of roller-coasters. You can also stay the night. efteling.com

You can’t go to Amsterdam and not take a boat ride on its famed canals. It’s also an eco-friendly way to take in all the sights. Blue Boat Tours is one of the best, and they even have a Hard Rock Burger Cruise. blueboat.nl
