organizing our 2 day 3 day stay

Hello Experts! After flying through Amsterdam MANY times, we are finally taking a short stay in your beautiful city.

Here is the list of things we would like to do but I need help with the layout and what to put when. Also, there is a lot of "book now and avoid the line" offers on the internet. I'm fine with doing that (if you so advise) but would need to know about when I'd be at each museum. I'm also interested in the pharmacies in Amsterdam. Will they refill scripts from US like Canada will?

Our top choices. feel free to add your thoughts;

Rijksmuseum, Vondelpark (we love green space) Van Gogh, Canal Cruise, Begijnhof (maybe), Anne Frank (have tickets for noon on day 2) The Jordaan (maybe), Red light district... open to others! We appreciate you!

The RLD, the vondelpark, the Jordaan is basicly you saying you are taking a walk. One park and two neighborhoods.

Take as much or as little time as you want in all three.

You could do vondelpark on your way to and from the VGM or the Rijks.

You could do the Jordaan and the RLD as you walk on either side of your canal cruise. You could do all three of these in less than four hours if you are pressed for time.

Two days 3 nights?

An idea of exactly how much time you have in town might help.
