If you're wanting to relocate with your entire family, Utrecht is the ideal destination. Utrecht is one of the world's top ten unsung locations, according to Lonely Planet (2012), and was ranked one of the top five happiest places to live by BBC Travel. If this doesn't persuade you to relocate to the city, we don't know what would!

If that's the case, The Hague is the place to be. The city spans for 11 kilometers along the beautiful sands of Scheveningen beach, which is located next to the North Sea. The renowned pier, bustling beach clubs, and a variety of other activities are all available here.
