Amsterdam with teens

Jump to last reply

We're a family of four with two teenagers, staying in Amsterdam in late June for 4 nights. As this trip was a last minute journey (starting in April, instead of planning it a year in advance)... some decisions were made quickly and then set aside.

It's a bit late to be asking, but what to those of you "in the know" think about our accommodations? A houseboat on the Prisengracht at the Prisenstraat.

I saw a post on another thread (while searching for information about Amsterdam) and someone mentioned that another area was "junkie heaven". I want to know the good, the bad, and the ugly about our chosen neighborhood! Happily, they've only asked for a deposit, so if we need to, we can change our minds.

Our teens are not interested in visiting the Red Light District or the coffee shops, so we are planning on the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, and any other teen-friendly activities you recommend. Shopping is always good too :)

Thanks in advance!
