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.
