My husband and I roamed all over and really enjoyed the area. Lots of interesting homes, some good restaurants. Fairly quiet.

Take a canal ride to really enjoy it. On a Sunday morning however, there was lots of trash in the canals from the Saturday night parties.

We walked quite a stretch along this street on the way to Anne Frank House. Very neat to walk along any of the canals. Do watch for cars and bikes as the side we walked on did not have much room for pedestrians.

Great Canal and the Boat ride had good english translation. The views were just as you would expect after seeing Amsterdam on the internet and pictures over the years. Generally very busy and lots of tourists more than I have seen around London.

Our canal cruise went this way and there seemed to be lots of places to stop off and pass the day away.
