Stroll down the Champs-Elysées—one of Paris' great avenues—for window shopping and people watching. Start at the Place de la Concorde, near the Louvre, and head towards the Arc de Triomphe. Your kids will be fascinated. There are dogs in the cafes and people taking tea with their pet pigeons. Every block has a bakery or sweet shop. Motorbikes take to the sidewalks, bicyclists cruise the roads, and mimes act out comedy routines on street corners. Lance Armstrong knows this stretch of road very well; it is here that the Tour de France traditionally culminates with a victory ride by the winner. –Candyce Stapen
