Party Earth Review As the name implies, La Quille (“The Pin”) is a classic bowling alley and pool hall, though seasoned bowlers might be really confused when they first walk in the door.

Although the endless nightlife options in the City of Light are enough to fill a thousand night-lifetimes, the same could arguably be said about all the other things to do in Paris during the day.
Long days can be passed wandering through the winding streets, sighing over masterpieces in the museums, or oohing and aahing the boundlessly beautiful historic buildings, plazas, and other landmarks (that little tower by some dude named Eiffel comes to mind).

Paris might not have beaches, but strolling down the river Seine with a baguette is just as satisfying – minus the annoying sand. Beautiful parks and gardens also abound, and the city’s grassy outdoor expanses can be enjoyed year-round, perfect for lazing about before venturing into the ever-vibrant Parisian night and enjoying all the other things to do in the city.
