Where is Say Anything? I disagree with the order, and films are missing people have already mentioned Say Anything. I have seen all of these and a few would not be on my list at all.

‘How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World’ Film Review: Third Time’s a Fire-Breathing Charm
This castle, only 40 minutes from Amsterdam by bus, dates back to the 12th century, and even has a proper moat. It is the perfect day trip with kids as Muiderslot includes many interactive exhibitions including knight inspired games for children, costumes for kids to try on, and even have falcons on the weekends. The town itself is very cute and very Dutch. Submission by Karen from WanderlustingK.

You can read more about Muiderslot and other Dutch castles on her blog. This is more of a low-key local day trip from Amsterdam. Visiting Amsterdam Forest is one of my favorite day trips from Amsterdam. The forest is a huge artificial park and just a minute bike ride south from the city. The park offers something to all of us! Amsterdam Forest is great for walking, cycling, spotting Scottish highland cows and there are many activities for kids. If you visit in spring, the cherry blossom park is worth a visit. I try to inspire travellers to leave Amsterdam for half a day and explore the stunning Dutch landscapes.
My favourite spot in Amsterdam Forest is Goat Farm Riddammerhoeve where kids can feed baby goats and cuddle with chickens. Check her blog for more information about visiting Amsterdam Forest.
