Leiden, Netherlands

POPULATION: 120,000

September 2016 - Present

"Mini-Amsterdam" as people...some people...ok just I call it.  About a 30 minute train ride south of Amsterdam, Leiden offers all the windmills, bikes, canals, and cafes you could want, at only 15% the size (area and population) of its bigger brother.  It's a big university town, and mostly populated by students during the school year.
