Amsterdam (He He)
Alright, I know everyone goes to Amsterdam to party, and if you want to party, Amsterdam does not disappoint, but it is also a fantastic city just to site see. Most of the locals are very laid back and tourist friendly. I don't know if it is because of all the elicit activities, but the city seems to be pretty easy going. Everyone was friendly and eager to help with directions or suggestions.
As I stated, Amsterdam isn't necessarily just a place to have bachelor parties; I think parts of it are pretty "family friendly." There is the red light district, which is an adults only zone, but other than that, I think Amsterdam would be a cool place to visit with the family.
There are museums, including the Rijksmuseum, canal cruises, flower markets, tons of restaurants and a lot of other things to see in Amsterdam. One of my favorite things was watching all the people on bicycles. They ride bicycles everywhere, at all hours and it just seems so much fun for some reason. I have a bike and it is not nearly as much fun to ride it as it looks to be in Amsterdam.
