TOP 5 THINGS TO DO IN AMSTERDAM

It’s no secret that there are so many things to do in Amsterdam as it is one of the most exciting places on this Earth to go visit. With its rich history, artistic legacy, intricate canal system and an abundance of museums, you will find that there is so much to do and see in the time you are there to visit. To help you come up with somewhat of an itinerary for your vacation, we’ve decided to write out a list of the top 5 things to do in Amsterdam.

Canal Ride

Take a historical canal ride. The water tours of Amsterdam are some of the most desired.
Since there are hundreds of canals throughout the nation that were created just for travel,
there is no reason not to give this popular attraction a try. During your gentle water ride,
you’ll get to view some of the country’s most detailed architecture and most beautiful landscapes.

Bulb Flower Park

Take a walk through the wildflowers. Amsterdam takes great pride in its bulb flowers,
especially tulips. Visit the amazingly vibrant bulb flower park in Lisse if you wish to see the tulips in all their glory. If you happen to miss tulip season, don’t worry. There are plenty of bulbed flowers that grow year-round at the park.

Art Museums

Red-light District

Walk through De Wallen, the nation’s red-light district. Although it’s famous for some risky behavior, there is much more to the city. Try out one the district’s fine restaurants,
small boutiques, or find more responsible entertainment at any of the places not lit up with red lights. For a faster way to venture through, rent a bicycle. You’ll find that you rent a bike nearly anywhere in the country.

Cannabis Coffeehouses
