August is time for the Paris Plages
A beach in Paris? Actually, this year, the city is expanding the wildly popular 'Paris Plages' to include the quais of the Seine (Voie Pompidou) and the increasingly hip Bassin de la Villette area. Sand is trucked in, cafes sprout, there are beach chairs, volley ball nets, concerts and more. Check out parisplages.paris.fr/en for descriptions of locations, and area for kids, sports, culture and more. What a civilized city!
