Tell someone you're taking the tots to Amsterdam and they might candidly inquire if the kids aren't a little too young for such a risqué metropolis. Amsterdam may have a racy reputation yet bawds and weed aren't its only attractions. The Dutch capital boasts more than 50 museums. Concertgebouw is a world famous venue for classical music. The city's 17th century center has grand Golden Age houses and concentric canals. Amsterdam is small and is easily traversed in an afternoon. It has lots of green space and a great variety of restaurants. There's always something happening indoors and out. What's more, the red light district is easily avoided.
