Things To Do In Amsterdam With Kids (or Without)

Over 17 years ago Alan and I fell in love with Amsterdam. We were living in London at the time and Alan needed to come over for business a few times. Of course, I would often come with him and roam the city, while he was working and then we would explore together in the evenings.  Those were the days prior to kids, so we ventured to all parts of the city and tried to experience as much as possible.  Now here we are returning years later with our kids, ages 9 and 12.  The city is just as we remembered.  So,  we thought we would share some things to do in Amsterdam with kids.

Canal Living In Amsterdam Is Sweet!

As you meander the narrow streets and tree-lined canals of Amsterdam, you can’t help but wonder what it would be like to live here.  To experience canal living in Amsterdam, in one of those tall narrow gable houses, each with a unique feel and personality.  Better yet, to live on one of the houseboats, which line the canals and get the real feel of the city.  That is the picture perfect dream I had over 16 years ago, when Alan and I first visited Amsterdam.
