We walked around peeking into these small boutiques and drinking Amstel Beer at the cafes. Lot's of unique little places, no chain stores here.

We walked around this neighborhood a few times and always stopping at different stores or trying different restaurants. It's so beautiful at night and a great place to try night photography. The sidewalks here are very narrow so be careful of bicyclists.

A nice quaint neighbourhood full of boutiques and cafes. Nice stroll along the canal and watch the crowd go about their daily routine. Some streets are more picturesque than another but overall worth a look

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)

shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
