My husband, 2 sons, and I are planning a trip to Amsterdam at the beginning of August. We like to shop (quirky/funky shops rather than high end designer or chain stores). We also like to bike and eat.
I just looked into houseboat rentals a little bit. It appears that quite a few of them are near Westelijke. What is this area like? Is it centrally located? Is it safe? Is it near shops/restaurants? Thanks.
