Whether you want to relax on the beach of the North Sea, visit the sights of the Amsterdam streets, or visit one of the best chocolate factories in the world, Netherlands is the place to be. If you're ready to get you sweet tooth high, Netherlands is one of the biggest chocolate producers in Europe, producing tons of chocolate a year! Netherlands is giant on their soccer, or "voetbal". They even placed 2nd in the 2010 World Cup! Amsterdam, the capital, is an extremely lively city. If you visit don't forget to roam the streets of Amsterdam! The Dutch are big on meat, potatoes, fish, vegetables, and bread. Every April 30 Netherlands packs the streets of Amsterdam to celebrate Queens Day, a Dutch holiday where they celebrate their Queen Beatrix. I hope you consider visiting Netherlands now!
