While you’re toiling away at your business-centric job this August, the French are busy turning even their economic centers into giant summer wonderlands where they spend their monthlong vacation lounging on man-made beaches on the Seine. File this one under: “Things to learn from the French.”
Per ABC, “now in its eighth year, the monthlong Paris Plages transforms a large section of the Seine’s stone and asphalt Right Bank into a public beachfront” including “a pool area and activities for children, a business section with Wi-Fi and newspapers for sale, and nighttime concerts.”
Actually, NYC did the same thing. It's called Water Taxi Beach (simply because you can commute to each of the 3 beaches via water taxi) - also free and very easy to get to!
