"“The land of chocolate, beer, and waffles”"

Coming from the United States, Brussels seemed quite small. It has the charm of many small towns with the convenience of being well connected to the rest of Europe.

For us, the big takeaway from Brussels was the chocolate. Belgian chocolate is in abundance in Brussels and it’s easy to spend an obscene amount of money on decadent boxes. Additionally, the rest of the food in Brussels is fantastic as well. We had our fair share of waffles, which though definitely overpriced were delicious, and the beer options are endless.

For museum lovers, book a long stay in Brussels because there are plenty of museums to check out. If art isn’t your forte, a short weekend getaway would be a better option, because with a car you can see all of Belgium in a few days.

Though there aren’t as many attractions and things to do as other cities in Europe, Brussels was an enjoyable stay and a place we’d certainly return to!
