Spring in Paris – Hangouts

February 28, 2019

Paris is a beautiful place to explore in any season, but one could argue that spring in Paris is the best of all seasons, especially to visit. We had a very long, cold, and wet winter and just when we thought the sun would never show its face again, voila!! The cherry blossom trees are sprouting their pink florals, the bright sun is reflecting off the cobblestone streets, and the local cafes are once again buzzing with chatter and Parisians awakening from their long winter slumber.

Looking for the best places to visit during this time? Look no further, here is a list of my top picks for springtime outings.


Parc de Sceaux

This lovely space is not any many tourist’s radar and should be on your top pick for parks. Just a short rer ride outside of the city you will stumble upon an entire field of pink cherry blossoms which is just adjacent to another entire field of white blossoms! Head over to your local boulangerie to pick up some sandwiches and delectable desserts for the perfect picnic set-up in a heavenly springtime field. The park also offers bike rentals, and an array of fountains and trails. One could spend hours exploring here!


Palais Royal Gardens

Tucked away just behind the Louvre you will stumble upon these lush parallel gardens. You will appear as a real local hanging in this area, as many tourists don’t ever find it! The garden is full of local Parisian puppies and long lines of gorgeous trees and greenery but also lined with shops and restaurants. Between taking in the sun and fountains you can stop in for a coffee or a peak at some local antique jewels.



Canal St-Martin

Canal Saint-MartinIf you’re looking for al fresco dining next to a waterway this is the place for you. This canal is 4.5km long and lined with an array of extraordinarily varied cuisine.When sunny days finally peak in Paris the streets are flooded with locals picnickers along the canal, chatting until sunset with champagne and wine by their side. The canal is very photogenic covered with trees and vintage swing bridges which pivot 90 degrees as the boats flow by. You will also find many trendy boutiques along its waterways.
