To expand on what has been suggested:
If you have been to Amsterdam before and decide to bypass it this time, take the train directly from Schiphol to Rotterdam and stay there for a day or two.
I believe there have been suggestions made on this web-site about things to do, but if you care to know more, please let us know.
Rotterdam is a very modern city compared with Amsterdam. Perhaps not as "gezellig" (cozy, quaint) but very interesting. See the tilted houses, take a boat tour of the harbor or browse in downtown.
Most folks speak English and it is easy to ask for directions and help. September should be a good time of year as far as the weather goes.
