Americans tend to be a bit silly when it comes to Amsterdam: mention of the city usually elicits comments on either a) the coffee shops that famously serve pot (though not to tourists, now); b) the Red Light district with its sex shows and prostitution. In associating Amsterdam with these two particular businesses, tourists miss out on the fact that Amsterdam is a cultural treasury, rich with art, historic buildings, and a thriving, exciting arts scene.

Stay away from the damned coffee shops… at least until you’ve checked out these top five Amsterdam attractions.
