Amsterdam: Beauty at Every Turn, Adventure at Every Sight

The Netherlands is more than just Amsterdam; Amsterdam is more than just the green leaf cafes and Red Light District.  Stick to the latter, and you are genuinely missing out on what makes this city great: canals, architecture, shopping, and FOOD! From Amsterdam Centraal Station, you can head to Haarlem or Zaanse Schans in less than 30 minutes or Rotterdam in over an hour. Grab a walkthrough bike and get going. If you will be exploring by foot, look both ways, up to the sky, down to the ground, and both ways again before you cross the street. The bike is KING here! This city will leave you speechless.
