Amsterdam is a city best explored with a good helping of serendipity, aided by some pre-trip planning. There is so much to do and see, both on and off the beaten path.
The museums are a big draw, of course. So are the canals. A walk along the Prinsengracht or Brouwersgracht, for instance, will create lifelong memories (not to mention countless Instagram-worthy photos). And a canal cruise indeed remains one of the best ways to discover the city. It remains not just the most popular tourist attraction in Amsterdam, but in the entire country of the Netherlands.
Then there is the nightlife — anything from pubs and restaurants, to theaters and discotheques.
Ask people who have been there what to see and do in Amsterdam. You’ll get more tips and suggestions than you’ll have time for. But realize there’s something new to discover around every corner. A unique shop, a special neighborhood bar, a restaurant favored by the locals, and so on.
