Watching the birds floating in the sparkling water as the sun shines down on Amsterdam is a simple pleasure. There are many great spots for a picnic in Amsterdam, but hanging out canal-side is one of the best things in the world. Of course, if you can be in the water, it’s even better!
On a beautiful day, the place to be in Amsterdam is on the canals. It really doesn’t matter if it’s a canal tour boat, a friend’s boat, or a rental, just being on the water is a captivating way to explore the city. Tourists and locals both enjoy this pastime, but the locals really take advantage when the sun is out.
You’ll see the craziest boats here! One might might be flat with fake grass and couches, another might be just barely seaworthy, still another could be made exclusively for social events. We’ve been lucky enough to have a wonderful grilled dinner on a boat with a bunch of others where the wine flowed freely! What an experience. It’s how I feel life is supposed to be lived.
So, now I leave you with one of the best views in the world. Enjoy!
