Spring is in full swing in Paris. The dullness of winter is gone and days of laying in parks or hours of walking in all the diverse quartiers of Paris are a go!
One of my favorite things in this city is sitting on the waterside and wasting the day away with friends, fresh salads, quiches, and maybe a bottle of French wine or two.
The Seine is the obvious choice as it is iconic and also runs through the majority of the southern part of the city but if you are looking for a really good time go to the Canal St Martin.
The Canal on a warm summer Saturday night is THE place to be. All day long the longs of the Canal become home to picnics, jam sessions, and everyday happenings. The ” youth” of Paris flock here to some of the most quaint cafés in the city and then end the night at the waterside with thousands of others. Each night that I have passed at the waters edge I have made new friends and had some of the greatest times of my life.
So when you are looking for something to do for nightlife in Paris forget the discotheque and the flashy out fits : grab your jeans and favorite t-shirt and go down to the canal for some of the best nights of your life. You could even make a few friends along the way.
