If you can't get to the beach, bring the beach to the city
The weather is getting nice in Amsterdam and on sunny days people flock to the beach if they can. But if they can't get to the beach, Amsterdammers can just go to Strand Zuid, which is a beach that's created in the middle of the city. They truck in sand and beach furniture and families can spend the day there, getting drinks at the bar that's set up.
At night, it turns into a nightclub with DJs spinning the tunes. It's right in our neighborhood at the back of the RAI conference center so maybe we'll check it out some night. We saw it last year from across the canal when we were walking in the park and it was a full on dance party.
