Nice place, good bike routes, going out, swimming, you can do all sorts of things and it feels welcoming. :D
Venray just is beautiful with nice playgrounds for the kids and nice terraces for the adults. The surroundings are incredibly beautiful and still it offers all the facilities a city does. Adding to this you have a magnificent scenery. In short: Go to Venr
Nice centre with terraces. Very cosy in the summer months when all the terraces are full! Outgoing life is reasonable. Some nice bars but noting special.
