Off to Paris soon and need some suggestions for the long weekend!

Jump to last reply

Just to complicate things my 17 yr old daughter is joining us plus her BFF.

We arrive on a Thursday Aug 21st and leave the following Wednesday and I'd appreciate some suggestions for activities for the girls.
Both have been to Paris before (my DD has been a few times and her friend joined us on a trip 4 years ago).

We've just booked flights and hotels so far but we also have a few commitments as DH will be attending a conference. We have a cocktail reception one night, dinner in the Louvre another so packing will be fun!
I'll be with the girls over the weekend but they're on their own Monday and much of Tuesday.
They'd like to check out La plage as that would be new for them but other than that and tickets for Parc Asterix on the Friday they have no other plans so far. They are both into shopping so best flea market for treasures would be great / costume jewelry, quirky clothes (nearby? cheap?)
They will happily spend quite a bit of time eating crepes and ice creams plus shopping in Monoprix.
DD's friend isn't really into art but would enjoy some music event. Friend is very sporty, my DD not so much!
We arrive on a Thursday Aug 21st and leave the following Wednesday.

We're staying at The Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile for 2 nights http://www.parisetoile.regency.hyatt.com/en/hotel/home.html
and The Westin Vendome for the rest of the time.
