Tom SwatlingOriginally from New York City, author David Swatling moved to Amsterdam in 1985. We caught up with him recently for some insider tips on how to get the most out of a visit to Amsterdam.

What are some of the best things about living in Amsterdam?

Amsterdam is a beautiful city with a rich cultural history. The Dutch are committed to LGBT rights. Same-sex marriage has been legal since 2001.

Why is Amsterdam a great city to visit?

Museums galore and a lively night life. It’s a small city and everything is within walking distance (although the Dutch prefer bikes, which are readily available to rent.) Many tourists are attracted to the coffeeshops with their exotic menus of grass and hash.
