We drove and walked through Haarlem. The canals were very pretty and worth seeing, but I was disappointed with the old city. It seemed a bit dirty which surprised me. It was less touristy then most places we visited, some streets had shops which catered to people who live there.

We were self-catering and Haarlemmerstraat was our go-to location to buy food and drink. It has a fish monger, butcher, cheese shop and baker, and two supermarkets (albert Heijn and Marqt), as well as cash points, some bars, a creperie etc etc. Made for a very pleasant shopping experience.

I got an apartment for 3 days on this street, and I had everything: it's close to the center and the main canals, there are shopping places, awesome restaurants (be sure to visit the Tibetan restaurant), coffee places, coffee shops (if you're into this kind of visit), bakeries, delis, and what not.

This street reminded me of a hip street in Brooklyn. A little off the beaten path but lively and full of locals. A bit of Old Amsterdam that made me miss "New Amsterdam".

Lots of boutique shops, this is a great street with quite a few restaurants. This runs from central station to westerpark. The slight downside is the number of coffee shops which bring a number of undesirable types...

There is lots to see and do on this street and in this area. Can't remember which shop we stopped to get a snack and coffee, but there is lots of choice.

This major street between the Centraal Station and the Jordaan has high-end shopping and many restaurants, yes, but it's also a wonderful place to people-watch. Study the folks walking by and have some fun by trying to guess if they are native A'damers, and if not, what country they originally come from. In my travels, only New York City offers... More

Loved this street in Amsterdam, found it when walking towards Jordaan. It has a nice quirky feel to it. I loved the home stores which offered some quirky designs for Holland and Scandinavia. Also a good selection of vintage shops for home and clothes. Lots of place to get a quite bite or relax and have a bit and drink.... More
