    Places I should see when I travel to Amsterdam???

    Can anyone place recommend some nice places to visit with my boyfriend? I'm traveling to Holland this years and plan to stay there 1 full month I'll be in a place named ''Hoorn'', this place is a few minutes away by car from Amsterdam. I'm planning to visit Anne Frank's house in Amsterdam, but I don't know what else could be worth visiting there. I'd appreciate it if a local or someone who has been there before could answer this question.

    Thanks in advance,
    Karen

    I've only been to Amsterdam but I have a few dutch friends and they all say that to see the real country you should stay as far from Amsterdam as you can.
    Seeing as you've got a month to spend, I'd go around the country and see the different areas. Make 2-3 day trips to the different big cities and maybe rent a car and drive around the countryside for a couple of days.

    Well, when in Amsterdam...go see the Red Light District,too. It`s part of Amsterdam`s colorful history and it is worth passing by this area on your way to other attractions. You can also visit Begijnhof, I really fell in love with this place. Begijnhof is like a break from the city, because the garden really looks like a sanctuary and you can relax there with your boyfriend and also take a peak of the place of worship that can be found there for the English community.

    I'm not sure if I'll be able to travel a lot around the country because I'm staying with my boyfriend, that's why I asked if any one knew of any good places worth visiting that are actually near to Amsterdam Thanks anyways, we will see how the boyfriend feels and depending on that we might actually travel

    Thank you!!!!!!! I loved your suggestion!!!! That place you mentioned sounds amazing and might actually be worth seeing, I'd love to take some pics with my boyfriend over there I was planning to visit the red district as well, I don't think I would miss that. I'm super excited but to be honest I don't like to plan things that much. I like to be spontaneous, that's why I haven't even looked into this :P Thanks again, your answer was actually very useful

    Ahh so your boyfriend lives there and you are going to see him? If he is working then yes traveling can be a bit rough but you still have the weekends! I'm sure if you ask he will be glad to travel around the country with you, you will see the country and he will get to spend time together with you away from home. This will make it a lot more special for him too!

    He lives there, but he'll be taking 3 weeks off while I'm there To be honest I feel so excited, this is the first time I visit Holland, but is not the first time I travel to europe I think I need to investigate a lot more on the internet, but at the same time I'm afraid that by doing so I'll ruin the ''surprise factor''. That's the real reason I haven't really searched around the internet. I'm hoping that he will suggest me places... and when we get there... I'll be genuinely surprised

    Must See Attractions In Amsterdam For Tourists

    Well if you are visiting Amsterdam, park your car outside the city and get a train in as driving and parking is a nightmare in the city. As for Amsterdam itself, I love it and it has some great art galleries, night life and buildings all surrounded by canals. As someone mentioned before, it really is very different to other Dutch cities so don't get the idea that everywhere is as tolerant.

    Thanks for the reply! I'll be staying in a place named Hoorn, which happens to be very close to Amsterdam I'll take adventage of the night life there, the fist place I want to see is Anne Frank's house! Do you know if this place is kinda warm during the summer/spring? I ask because of the canals they have everywhere.
