There is so much to do and see in Paris! Deciding what to do, and what to skip, can be overwhelming, especially with limited time in the "City of Lights."
This post includes a list of the Paris sights that we saw, with photos and reviews for each. Hopefully this post will serve as your own little Paris tour or it will help to inspire your future visit.
To see more about the basics of our trip, read the Paris Overview post. I'll be posting again soon with what we ate in Paris.
Paris is a feast for the eyes. Many of the scenes are exactly like the paintings and images you've seen a million times: cream colored buildings topped with blue grey awnings, and dotted with ornate iron balconies, charming shutters, and colorful flowers. There are huge and historic churches like Notre Dame and Sacre Coeur mixed with modern and geometric masterpieces like the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre pyramid. No design detail is spared.
The sights from our visit in Paris include:
Bonjour! We just visited Paris, France, for the very first time. While I'll do a full download of our favorite food and activities soon, I thought an immediate and basic overview of our visit will be helpful to me in the future. Hopefully it will also be helpful for you!
Overall I LOVE love LOVED Paris and would and will go back again in a heartbeat. Our time there was not nearly long enough.
'Fav 5' travel guides include 5 of the best spots I've found to eat, drink, and explore in a city while visiting. This is the first of a two part guide to Nashville, Tennessee, focused specifically on the sights and sounds in downtown Nashville.
Recent Fav 5 travel guide locations include Vancouver, BC in Canada and Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California.
Nashville, Tennessee. What began as a high school band trip for my cousin and her 15 year old daughter turned into a family vacation for 10 people! We took on Music City like it was our job. While a large group with various interests and staggering ages wasn't easy to coordinate, we all carefully selected which activities and tours to go on during our 5 days in Nashville.
Nashville is both the capital of and the most populated city in Tennessee. This guide will cover locations specifically in downtown Nashville including "Lower Broadway." Named for the street running through it, Lower Broadway is the heart of the country music district. It is dotted with stores filled with boots and hats galore and you can't count the number of cycle bar tours and bachelorette parties whizzing by. You'll be delighted to catch colorful murals and live music around every corner.
Travel tip: Checking the Uber website before flying into any city is always a great idea. Many airports have the "ride sharing" pickup in some corner of a back building somewhere, accessible only by hidden elevators or water taxis, and you can waste plenty of time looking for it. Here is your guide on how to catch an Uber in the Nashville airport (BNA).
Fav 5 is a series of travel guides in which I highlight 5 of the best spots I've found to eat, drink, and explore in a place while visiting. This time it's all about Vancouver, in British Columbia (BC) in Canada.
Vancouver is a Canadian city located in the province of British Columbia. It's just about 2.5 hours' drive time from Seattle, Washington, to Vancouver. I was shocked to learn that Vancouver is the 4th most densely populated city in North America after New York City, San Francisco, and Mexico City.
Recent posts include Disney Parks basics and a travel guide for Disney's California Adventure Park. Today includes my favorite 5 things from Disneyland!
Disneyland. The first Disney park, the OG. Walt Disney even had an apartment in the park, just above the "Fire Department." t's the most classic, charming, and nostalgic of all of the parks, in my opinion. It is nestled in Anaheim, California and just next door to Disney's California Adventure.
