Go Dutch in wintertime: Lynden offers more than just tulips

Lynden in winter? But what do you do without tulips and berries? It might seem counterintuitive, but paying a visit to the historic, Dutch heritage town of Lynden in the dead of winter can still give you a taste of Holland, even without the springtime fields and flowers. You just have to be prepared to get your Dutch on. After all, there are 16 million Dutch folk who live in the actual Netherlands year-round, not just at tulip time. And what do they do in the middle of winter? Eat yummy food, cycle (yes, even in winter), milk cows, drink excellent beer and skate. And you can do most of those in wintertime Lynden, too, with a bit of creativity.
