    Hi dudes,

    Amsterdam's coffeeshops top 5:

    -Rick's cafe (so underground, you can find booze and hot waitresses :eek: )
    -Rusland ( the oldest coffeeshop, virtually a museum)
    -Bluebird (amazing menu)
    -Goa ( terrace, cool zik, good hasch)
    -The doors palace (a legendary place too, and you can find booze)

    My favorite hotel: hotel Neutraal, from 8 €/n

    You want more about low budjet hotels, coffeeshops, red light district...

    Seems like a cool site for roadtrippers for sure. But there is a commercial aspect of the site, and i dont know if it can stay here. Be sure you read all the rules before you post further Weeda. welcome. All hail the forum!

    Is it uncommon to be able to get alcoholic beverages at these coffee shops and such?

    Yes. Coffeeshops depend upon their licence. Almost all licences forbid the sales of alcohol.

    Why?

    I thought Rotterdam was a cool part of the Netherland experience.

    Everyone's always saying "get out of Amsterdam and visit ''real' Holland," or "go to coffeeshop outside of Amsterdam for weed at better prices better experience."

    Is there something about Rotterdam that disqualifies it as a destination point?

    I know it's a major commerce point for W Europe w/lots of port traffic and almost completely rebuilt after bombing in WW2, but that is all I know.

    Well, if I ever have to jump two ponds to get there, I would certainly want to see Rotterdam if only for a few days (and $65 per night at the Westin seems damned good price), although I do appreciate engeneering in conjunction with architecture so I would assume the Dutch water retention systems would be more to my personal liking.

    It would probably blow me away when I'm sober, so I couldn't imagine how it would warp my mind if I saw it after a coffeeshop stop.

    Yes, that looks much better!

    Better to get fresh crab cakes or some hot seafood chowder after the drinking bing.... er, um , Sight seeing tours.
