    My favorite place EVER

    So much to do in this city. Before my vacation, I joked with my friends that I would enjoy "the architecture" in Amsterdam. Little did I know that this city is breathtaking in every way. The beautiful buildings, the romantic canals. So much to see and so much to do. Truly the land of the free. I spent three days straight walking the streets of Amsterdam and I wasn't bored for a single second. I will be back as soon as I can and I cant wait! Go here and have the time of your life.

    Had a blast in Amsterdam, there is so much to see! Although definitely rent a bike. They were so cheap and this city is so bike friendly its almost silly. They have the right of way and bike lanes are larger than roadways and it seems everyone bikes.

    Gorgeous and easy to navigate, Amsterdam's the place to be. The people are chill, there's no lack of places to visit or eat, and everything is beautiful. Even in the dead of winter.

    Amsterdam was a beautiful city! It exceeded my expectations and I would love to go back. Highly recommend the free walking tour to get an overview of the city.

    Insider Tip:Rent bikes to get around! Quickest and easiest way to travel through the city.

    Very fun city. Go to the coffee and shops and see the red light district. Anne Frank Museum is free, but the line is long. Other museums are very cool but too pricy for a student on a budget.

    Insider Tip:Rent bikes for at least one day!
