Lovely City with lots to do
When in Amsterdam, do as the locals do, or you will find out the hard way, stay off the bicycle paths or you will end up flat on the sidewalk. Amsterdam has probably more bicycles per capita than any other country in the world; they use them every day, no matter what season and that is part of the charm. While in Amsterdam do take your time to walk around, it is a walker friendly city, stroll thru the many streets and admire the laid back culture, cafes, architecture, and of course , the canals, take a boat tour thru the canals and just relax, enjoy, take many pictures or not, if you just want to relax and take it all in. if you are a fan of Van Gogh , you must go to the Van Gogh Museum, nestled in a nice neighborhood , close to upscale shops and of course, the home of Heineken beer, where you must go even if you are not a beer drinker.
