By

Situated less than 30 miles from Amsterdam in the province of Zuid-Holland (South-Holland), the town of Lisse is widely regarded as the center of Holland's bollenstreek (bulb district). Each spring, the area's sandy coastal plain becomes a sprawling blanket of fantastic color as millions of Dutch tulip, hyacinth and daffodil bulbs emerge in perfect rows. Enjoy pictures of this unforgettable sight, which is certainly worth a day trip from Amsterdam.
