Amsterdam in the sunny Summertime. - Too much fun.
June 26 - July 4, 2021
A fabulous week in Amsterdam with the Porters' Pub gang!!!
Summertime is the perfect time to visit Amsterdam with it's mild weather, sunshine and average highs in the low 70's.
Are you kidding me? This trip is going to be a blast! Round trip air from Newark to Amsterdam. Seven nights in the highly rated NUI Dairy Hotel including breakfast. Our hotel is located on a canal in historic Haarlem, just a 15 minute train ride to the heart of Amsterdam. Haarlem is a fantastic destination in it's own right, a classic Dutch city of cobbled streets, historic buildings, grand churches and museums, tons of cozy bars and fine cafes and canals. We'll be right in the heart of the city and a short walk to the train station. Amsterdam needs no introduction, a great town, very walkable with pretty canals and lots of great dining options. We'll also be offering an optional day trip to visit LaTrappe... the only Trappist Brewery in The Netherlands and a stop at the famous DeMolen Brewery on the way back. Visit the Van Gogh Museum, the Anne Frank House, the Brown Cafes, experience the world famous nightlife and explore the hip neighborhoods of Jordaan and De Pijp, and so much more. The weather will be gorgeous and it's a perfect time to take a scenic canal ride or rent some bicycles.

Amsterdam is unlike any city on earth. Use your free time to wander the unique neighborhoods .. The Negen Straatjes (nine little streets) in the Western canal ring full of boutiques, galleries, restaurants and bars, the now well established Jordaan, and the up and coming De Pijp neighborhoods... and explore the world class museums like the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh museum, the Stedelijk Museum and many more. Take a canal boat ride and experience the city from a unique perspective. The surrounding ocean helps to keep the temperature mild with average daily high temps in the low 70's, so it will be super comfortable.
