De Adriaan, Haarlem windmill
Just a 15 minute train ride from Amsterdam is the picturesque town of Haarlem, complete with canals and De Adriaan windmill. You can go in (for a fee) but the best viewpoint is across the canal (and free!).

As a bonus, Haarlem is a fairly compact town and it is easy to wander the streets admiring the flowerboxes and old brick buildings for the better part of a day.
