You know that feeling when you walk outside, and the crisp air hits you for the first time that year? You’ve been waiting for the cool breeze all summer long, right!? Yes, it’s fall! Time to pull out those beloved boots and enjoy the autumn weather before winter .
I am from FL, so I rarely get to experience this beautiful season. We have palms trees and green leaves all year-long. Not this time, I got to experience a chilly Halloween, and then watch the leaves change colors all around the city of Paris, during our Friendsgiving celebration.
When Autumn came around this year, I could not walk more than 10 steps without taking photos of the red, yellow, and orange trees. As you can see! I mine as well have been wearing a shirt that said, “I am a tourist”. Oh well!
There are many little parks throughout the city, where you will see the locals enjoying a light lunch, casual covo, or reading their book while sipping on something warm. I have learned to slow down a bit, and take breaks to enjoy the scenery like a real Parisienne.
Paris in Fall is a great idea! The high season has ended at this point, which makes for shorter lines, less crowds, and lower prices. Most tourists use summer or winter breaks to travel overseas, because of school breaks and American Holidays. In my opinion, late September, October, and November is a wonderful time to visit Paris, because it’s easier to blend in and experience the city as a local. Make sure to pack a dark-colored jacket, a scarf, a hat and some cool boots!
Part II coming! I will share my favorite “Fall Paris SNACKS” that will keep you warm and satisfied.
