The last stop on my Netherlands bus tour was the fishing town of Volendam. Volendam is popular with locals and tourists alike. We arrived at lunch time on a Saturday, and found the seaside town absolutely packed. This stop was brief, just an hour, which gave me enough time to snap some pictures and grab an ice cream cone for lunch.
Of course Volendam has a cheese museum. I wonder how many cheese museums are in the Netherlands? Any guesses?
Also for the tourists: this place, where you can have your picture taken in traditional Dutch clothing.
A store to buy clogs.
Being a fishing village, seafood was everywhere. I like this guy.
I hope to return to Volendam on a future trip, one where I have enough time for a proper restaurant meal. Seriously, Volendam is a place for foodies. Everything smelled amazing. My homemade ice cream on a freshly made waffle-cone with sprinkles was heaven.
