  • Amsterdam is a very cool city, and frequently described as one giant movie set. A short stroll along the canals will show you why: leaning houses, furniture being lifted through windows, houses too narrow for a basketball player - there are a lot of cool finds that can make you feel like you've stepped back in time.

    All these quirks that make Amsterdam awesome are a result of the city's efforts to preserve its historic city center, and current legislation prevents the construction of modern houses in the canal belt. During renovations, old houses are gutted out while the facade remains intact, preserving this little bit of history that is so uncommon in many major cities.

    Spend your time exploring art exhibitions in historic buildings, or take in this architecture as you take advantage of Amsterdam's progressive social laws at a coffeeshop. Shop like a local at the various markets or visit quirky little boutiques with one of a kind items. With so much to do in this giant playground of a city, Amsterdam is a very cool place to visit.
