De Zwaan Windmill
Dutch for "swan," De Zwaan Windmill was built in 1761 in the Netherlands and then brought to the U.S. in 1964. Willard Wilchers and Carter Brown were responsible for cutting through the red tape to convince the Netherlands to sell one of their precious historic windmills to a foreign country and this one is actually the last to leave the fatherland. The best time to see the windmill is in the spring when the tulips are in full bloom. Maybe not as stunning as Keukenhof, but still enjoyable. The windmill is open from April to October, 9:30 to 6 every day with a $9 admission fee. Check the City of Holland website for updated information.
