Northern Holland region
The region is very easy to reach by bike, or car. The land is, as you might know, very flat and there are lakes, canals, etcetera. The summers can be hot but a rainy day can be expected.
In the region, as in the rest of The Netherlands, there are many places of interest.
As the country is not so big, and many ways of transportation are easy to use, it is recommendable to also make trips outside Amsterdam if you have the time.
Almost everything is close: all important museums, restaurants, pubs, The Anne Frank House, Central Station, bike rentals, boat rentals and tours, parks, cinema's, the zoo, a science museum for kids is just across the harbour.
The nearest beaches are in Bloemendaal and Zandvoort. Only appr. 20 km.
By train you can go drectly to the beach of Zandvoort.
