It’s the best place to ride a bike. Because Who isn’t happier after a bike ride? Better yet, take a guided bike tour, make new friends from around the world, and learn some history about the city.

You can lighten up A LOT in Amsterdam. Visit the Red Light District. Hangout in a “coffee shop,” even if you don’t like to consume marijuana, it’s obviously legal here and a part of the city’s unique culture.

You can get a major change in perspective – Visit the Ann Frank House. This place will leave you in silence and marvel. It’s not everywhere that you can view one of the most horrific events in modern history through the eyes of a child. You will probably shed some much needed tears. I did.

You can chill in a magnificent park. Optional Tai Chi. Nothing is more therapeutic than sunshine and nature. Amsterdam’s parks are prime in the summer months. It’s common to see groups of people doing chi tai. So peaceful.
