I’ve been to France twice in my life. The first was on a family trip in 2010, where we spent three days in Paris before cruising down the Rhine River and stopping along small French and German towns. The second was during my solo European travels in 2015, where my sole reason was to visit Disneyland Paris. Clearly I’m an adult who can make adult decisions. I would hardly call myself an expert of France, but I will do my best to tell you what my favorite parts about my visits were! To read about my most recent time in France, click here.
I can’t say that my sole reason for my second trip was because of Disneyland and NOT highlight Disneyland Paris! I’m obsessed with all things Disney and one of my goals is to visit all of the Disney parks (so far, I’ve been to three out of the six). Smaller than Disneyland in Anaheim, this park offers rides with a bit more thrills than those that the American crowds are used to. While Space Mountain in Anaheim is an indoor roller coaster-type ride, Paris’ offers a thrill-seeker’s dream with six loops–in a children’s theme park! You can probably hit all of the major rides from both parks in a day, so if you’re looking for something kid-friendly while in Paris, or you’re just a massive dork like me, worth a visit!
I’m still dreaming of this Parisian cafe years later and its decadent hot chocolate that coats your mouth in pure cocoa. Angelina is well known for this drink, but also offers delicious French pastries that can match anyone’s taste buds. Worth a stop in just for the drink, though!
Segway Tour through Paris
After rolling our way through San Diego in 2009, Segway Tours became a family staple for our vacations. The one we took in Paris was particularly incredible, because we got to cover the ground of a new city in not a lot of time. The guides are always very knowledgeable and the photo ops are priceless. I think I’ve been on five tours and I firmly stand by them, no matter how dorky they make me look.
L’as Du Fallafel (Paris)
Hands-down the best falafel I’ve ever had outside of Israel was at this tiny hole in the wall, L’as Du Fallafel. While I can’t quite remember what made it so spectacular, I do know that I still remember how great it was all these years later. A must for any lover of Israeli food…or food in general!
