Do you enjoy tulips? In 3 months tulips will be in season and blooming for all to enjoy in Europe. If you have even wanted to tiptoe through them you can in Holland. Are Amsterdam and Netherlands places you would like to visit? Plan your getaway to the Netherlands so you don't miss out. More than 7 million bulbs bloom in spring at the Keukenhof gardens with over 800 varieties of tulips.
Do you know why the tulip is the national flower of the Netherlands? In the 17th century the tulips were infected by a disease that caused bright colors, lines and flames on the petals of the flower. Many special breeds of tulips were named after Dutch navy admirals.
The Netherlands may be a small country but it is packed with opportunities to explore the fields of flowers, the windmills, cheese markets, wooden shoes, canals of Amsterdam and much more. It is very common to see folks enjoying a bike ride through the flowers.
In late April the Bloemencorso is the highlight of the blooming season when the Flower Parade will travel from Noordwidjk to Haarlem. There are a few ways to experience Holland but I like to experience this by a river cruise. You unpack once and dock close to the cities you will have time to explore.
If you are ready to plan your trip to Amsterdam or the Netherlands let's talk. The season is fast approaching and it is very brief. Accomodation go quickly.
If you want to see tulips and don't want to travel internationally to see them you can go to Holland, Michigan in May from Austin, TX. The festival there boast over 5 million tulips to see and enjoy.
