Get To Know Amsterdam

Amsterdam may have been my favorite city to visit during my latest trip to Europe. Whether you join the many bikers, hop on the tram or head out on foot, this city is so easy to maneuver. You can get by just fine by speaking English and the people are as nice as you’ll find in any southern town here in the U.S.

I especially loved how soft drugs and prostitution aren’t seen as problems to combat but rather inevitable facets to be integrated into society.

My goal while in Amsterdam wasn’t to cram as many attractions as possible into my short visit but rather explore and enjoy the canals, people and all around culture.

Here are my recommendations of what to do while in Amsterdam:

– Eat at The Pancake Bakery

– Visit the Van Gogh Museum

– Admire a young girl’s spirit at the Anne Frank House

– Eat fries slathered in mayo at one of the many french fry stands

– Explore the Red Light District

– Stroll through a street market

– Pop into a coffee shop like the Bluebird

– Check out Museumplein

– Take a canal cruise at night so that you can peek into strangers houseboats (not creepy at all).

Remember, Don’t Waste Time In Line. Get your museum tickets before you arrive.
