Off-Season Tourism

Or, Winter Wonderland in Amsterdam
This photo of people ice skating on Prinsengracht canal in Amsterdam recently captured my imagination and aroused my wanderlust.  It also got me thinking about off-season travel.  Wouldn't it be amazing to skate down Amsterdam's canals and admire the charmingly crooked canal homes?

I visited Amsterdam a year ago, in March.  The weather was dry and bright, if a bit cold.  I had hoped to see tulips in bloom, but I think I was a bit early for them still.
