My family and I stayed in an apartment right along the Herengracht for 3 days. We enjoyed strolling along the canal and taking advantage of the shops and cafes in the Nine Streets. We highly recommend this location for your visit to Amsterdam!

sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws
