Pot. The Red Light District. There, we've gotten that over with—let's talk about the less cliched aspects of Amsterdam. It's a charming city, full of canals (for a true local experience, rent a houseboat on one of them) and bridges. No one should miss the Anne Frank House—even if the line's around the block, it's worth the wait. The Rijksmuseum houses masterpieces from Rembrandt and Van Gogh. Or simply follow your nose to the world's only floating flower market, where you'll see blooms from local greenhouses and from around the world.
