Amsterdam is known for all of its coffee shops and the red light district, but we wanted to skip all that and explore the city in a different way.
Amsterdam has many wonderful museums and so many great sights to see so much so that we actually ran out of time and didn't get to explore everything we wanted.
One of the things we love most about Answer Damn was how easy it was to use their transit system.
Most of time, we rode the tram because it would almost always take us within steps from our final destination.
Plus, there are service desks all over the place to help the tourists navigate even on the tram.
If you're in Amsterdam for the weekend, here are a top seven things we think you should definitely check out Number one and Frank House.

The entire space is a great place to snack some fun photos, and it's even encouraged to do so.
The exhibits change from time to time, so you might experience something different from what we did in these funky rooms.

I don't know, Number four Rijksmuseum thing.
This is a gigantic Dutch national museum dedicated to the arts in history of Amsterdam.
There is a wide variety of paintings, sculptures, models and furniture to view at this fascinating museum.
Well, it really liked about Rijksmuseum was the information cards they provided next to some of the paintings.
They would point out all the details and what was significant about the painting, which made the experience more interesting.
It's nice how they give you the details of the painting.
What's interesting about it, you know?

A photography tour with David David is a professional photographer, and we'll give you great tips on how to use your camera for that perfect photo in Amsterdam.

The tour runs for about 2.5 hours, and we really felt that we got so much more than what we paid for this was probably one of the best photography tours we've done on all of our travels, and we highly recommend it.
Number six Albert Keep market.
This is the place to get a taste of all the iconic Amsterdam foods like Stroup, waffles, fries and chicken at a great price.
It's also a great place to go shopping for souvenirs, clothes, flowers, food and so much more.
Sometimes I feel like markets are a little overpriced, but this market was the complete opposite.
