Visit Keukenhof Gardens in the Netherlands
I just returned from sailing on a Vantage Travel river cruise from Basel, Switzerland to Amsterdam. Foolishly, I didn’t plan well because if I did, I wouldn’t have flown home the day before the Netherlands’ Keukenhof Gardens open for the season. Fortunately, I’ve been to Keukenhof once before (it was amazing), but I really wanted my wife to see it.
If you appreciate flowers, color or beauty of any kind, make a point to visit the 79-acre Dutch gardens at some point. They open today (March 24) and close on May 16. The gardens are located about 20 miles southwest of Amsterdam in Lisse and feature more than seven million bulbs, including 800 varieties of tulips. Tickets cost about $18 for adults and $9 for children ages four to 11.
