driving tips from The Hague to Paris!! pls!

Jump to last reply

Hi we are driving from Den Haag, Netherlands to Paris this weekend. We are leaving friday morning driving south thru Belgium and want to stop somewhere for the afternoon and arrive in Paris in the evening. We are then spending the weekend in Paris, staying in the Latin Quarter, we have all been to Paris before, but we didn't really get a great taste of this area. We will visit the Eiffel tower (again) because our son loves it, but then we just want to visit cafes, and we really want to see some live music! I really wanted to go to Moulin Rouge, but I hear it's pretty awful, also I am a dancer so I may be even more critical. Any amazing dance/performance shows and/or music would be greatly appreciated!
Gent and Antwerp are exactly on our route, but since we have never been to Belgium before, we thought to go to Brussels or Brugge. Both Brussels and Brugge are a little off our direct path, but we thought we should stop in each town, one on the way to Paris and one on the way home. Any thoughts of which towns to stop in Belgium, we need to pick two, one for friday afternoon and one for monday afternoon. We will likely stop for lunch and beer tasting, and walk around to get a little taste of the town.
We are two couples, one in early 20s, one in early 30s and an 11 yr old.
Thanks so much!!
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
