The best way to explore Amsterdam is by water and by foot. We walked miles a day so we could eat the best goodies like above! We rented a pedal boat the first day and if you want a great workout than this is for you! Right by the Anne Frank house is the best place to get on the canal boats and pedal boats. We loved our canal ride and you can find the info here.

Such a fun experience!

If you have been following me on Instagram you know we had quite the time with our Airbnb and needed to leave the situation. We ended up getting our money back from Airbnb and stayed at such a nice boutique hotel that we would not have wanted to spend the money on. The rooms were half off since we booked it so late and it was heaven!!!

The hotel library!

How cute is this place!? It looked right over the canal and we couldn’t believe the location!!!

Walk everywhere and explore new things, shops, art and food.

Bike- we did not try this because it was so busy, but it would be fun in the off season!

Eat!!!! We found the food to be good anywhere you go. Especially try the apple pie and pancakes!

The best pizza! Look these guys up if you go!

Brugge is filled with old world charm. We loved experiencing it all for the first as a family. We were able to experience another canal ride and if you go please do one! It is so easy to get on and off the boat and a great way to see the city.
