Non-Overrated Tourist Attractions – Eiffel Tower


There are many tourist attractions I really hate. Times Square, I’m looking at you. However, there are a few that I love with all my heart.

The first being the Eiffel Tower in Paris. There are a thousand pictures of it already and the pictures that I take of it whenever I go there are always the same but I just can’t help it.

The best time to go in my opinion is the fall. Paris in the fall is like being in a movie. Pack a picnic (cheese, wine and crème brûlée for dessert) and go sit in the grass and wait for it to get dark. Right at dusk the lights on the tower will come on and sparkle for 5 minutes. It starts every hour on the hour every night. The best part is the first second it comes on, you hear everyone in park gasp. Be careful though, there are mice in the park scurrying around..but even that can’t stop it from being romantic.
