How To Get There: If you live in the U.S., obviously you would fly. If you were to leave tomorrow, you can leave 9:40am  from JFK airport and stop in Dublin before heading to Charles de Gaulle (the “go to” airport in Paris) for $730. This may seem like a drag but right now the going rate for non-stop flights from New York are $2,400.
Where to Stay: If you are low on cash, renting an apartment is a great option. Check out airbnb.com where you can find a rental in practically any part of the world. If you have money to burn, Hotel Le Bristol is located near some of the city’s best shopping and has a world famous spa to boot.
Hidden Gem: Free P. Star is a fun vintage boutique where you can score Hermes style scarves at 1 euro a piece. Plus perfumer Annick Goutal is right across the street in the 4th arrondissement (what the French call neighborhood).
Where to Eat: Les Deux Magots has amazing steak frites and the waiters give a new meaning to professional waiter. It’s also excellent for people watching, considering it’s location in hip Saint Germain.
Fashion Indulgence: Something from Hermes. Whether it’s a scarf or a bracelet, you will keep it forever.
Why Paris?: It’s the most romantic city in the world. You will feel like you stepped back in time. You will never want to go back to the present.
