3. Paris, France
One of the main party capitals of Europe, Paris offers an extreme contrast to those beaches in Cancun or Miami. There might be no beaches or girls in bikinis, but the city has many other things to offer. After all, there is a reason why Paris is called “the city of love”. Getting to Paris is the easy part, as multiple airlines offer direct routes from the U.S. to Paris and competition on air fare can be fierce. Staying in Paris is where the expense usually kicks in, although if you search around enough and are willing to stay in the outer arrondisements you can find some better hotel deals.
In Paris you will find delicious food like no other in the world, plenty of museums and lots of architectural sights to enjoy. From massive clubs to intimate wine bars, hipster dives to cabaret, Paris has whatever nightlife scene you crave.
