If music and art are your thing, this is the place to be, what with La Villette's celebrated indoor and outdoor concerts and festivals, and talented local street artists creating displays on a daily basis. Although it's a little ways from the center of Paris, this vitality-filled neighborhood is worthy of the trip, especially in the summer, when skilled swimmers and frolicking kids fill the Bassin de La Villette. The canal offers other good features, like cruises, private boat rentals, and public urban art extravaganzas. Public displays of affection are welcome, too.
