Amsterdam

Amsterdam is a city with a rich history and beautiful canals. In my visit, I felt the city was reasonably accessible except for a few pockets where it was logistically a nightmare to maneuver the canals. Despite that, Amsterdam is such a cool city with so much to offer and has great restaurants and museums.
