The central canal area was a great place to walk for a few hours. Great people watching, interesting architecture, and easy access to the zoo, nearby parks and downtown. I ended up walking all the way. Ack to the airport. That is not recommended though.

This is a nice spot in the city, and is pretty inviting if you're looking to take a load off for a short while. You can rent a boat, get an ice cream bar, or just sit and people watch.

This and many other interesting things were easily accessible by a short walk from my hotel. I took a stroll through the whole thing just to have a look at it. It's great exercise and there's lots to see down there. Check out the pics

This is a nice place to walk or exercise, but if you are looking to stroll and take in a glass of wine or dinner along the canal, your choices are really limited. There are only two restaurants we saw and we walked for over...More
