Amsterdam is the capital of Holland, which is most famous for its legalization of...well everything.
This. If all you want is Amsterdam plus the sex and the drugs and the beer, keep going. It's just best to get the stuff nobody here cares about out of the way frist.
For all you intellectual types, Amsterdam has a plethora of museums regarding the early history of Holland as well as the actual house Anne Frank and the rest of the people who's names nobody remembers stayed in hiding while escaping Nazi percecution.
Yes, that Anne Frank.
For all you artsie types, the wonderful museum of Vincent Van Gogh and his not so interesting brother is here as well.
Van Gogh today (probably most accurant statement so far)
As you all should know Amsterdam is famous for everything you cannot get in the states.
The closer you get to the church in the center of the district, the uglier they get.
So, please, everything your friend tells you about Amsterdam, just believe it. He's probably telling the truth. Yes, the beer there is incredible. Yes, the women there are incredible. Yes, the coffee shops there are incredible and not just because they make good coffee.
The dildo is Amsterdam's mascot. You can find it everywhere.
Just an interesting bit of info, some of the girls have glow in the dark underwear. You know you want a pair.
