Concerned about tourist mistakes in Paris?
Who doesn't dream of visiting Paris? Romantic boulevards, cozy cafes, and the world's greatest architecture - all in one gorgeous and historic metropolis!
Oh, but let's also be honest, along with that enchanting ambiance also comes masses of tourists, huge lines, crowded museums, and perhaps a bit of frustration. Being "an American in Paris" may conjure up images of a classic film, but it may also bring to mind classic "tourist" issues, traps, and mistakes that tourists encounter abroad.

Paris Tourist Mistake:
French cuisine is phenomenal. Even at its most touristy, it's still great. Step outside of your "comfort zone" and explore all that French food has to offer. Can't find drip coffee? Have an espresso concoction - goodness knows they can cook up something delicious!
