"Amsterdam, a popular layover destination" Amsterdam by Dabs

Both of my visits to Amsterdam have been on long layovers flying from another European city back home to the US. My choices for flying this time was either through London Heathrow or Amsterdam Schiphol, Amsterdam's airport is large but it's still a lot easier to transfer through than Heathrow and the transportation option to the city much easier and quicker.
We had an intentional 7 hour layover in Amsterdam, once we got there and saw the gloomy gray skies, I wished I had opted for a few extra hours in bed!!! But the rain held off and we enjoyed a canal cruise and a walk through the central area of Amsterdam before hopping back on the train and heading back for the long journey home.
We didn't see a lot of people riding bicycles in Amsterdam, perhaps because it was a Sunday and a drizzly one at that... more travel advice
I was fascinated by FEBO, although not fascinated enough to plunk money into one of the slots! We passed by one of them... more travel advice
