Bonjour from Paris


If you've poked around this blog for awhile, you may remember my daughter's infatuation with all things Paris. I mentioned it awhile back in the post For the Love of Paris when she painted her own picture of the Eiffel Tower. Well, after our trip last week, I think she'll have even more inspiration.

We drove hours out of our way just to see Paris. Well, Paris...Tennessee, that is. Home to the World's Biggest Fish Fry, which was not happening last week, in case you were wondering, we were a few weeks early. No, we planned our trip only to see the 60- foot tall replica of the Eiffel Tower in Memorial Park.

My daughter could not have been happier. I must admit, it was pretty neat. Smaller than I expected. But neat nonetheless. Even the boys enjoyed stopping. Kind of... We stopped at Walgreen's on the way out of town to purchase postcards (did you know you could find them there?) so she could mail one to some of her friends and one to herself...post marked Paris, of course.

So, was it worth it to drive three hours out of our way just to see this Roadside Attraction? I guess that depends on who you ask, but my daughter would wholeheartedly reply, "Oui!"

Now I have a question for you...do you make it a point to visit Roadside Attractions? If so, what has been your most memorable so far?

  1. That's great that you all took the time to give your daughter something she will remember. I've been to the real Eiffel Tower, but my mom and I were too chicken to actually go up.

  2. Hmmm...didn't we 'talk' about this before? My daughter was so in awe that you've seen the Eiffel Tower. In her eyes, that feat makes you almost famous!:) LOL

  3. That is too funny...lol..A roadside attraction. That is actually about 90 miles from where I grew up and lived till we moved to Texas. Paris Landing was where our girls went to Girl Scout Camp and also the very first spot my wife and I went camping 31 years ago.

  4. Ha ha. I was guessing that maybe you'd gone to Vegas to see that Eiffel tower, but thought that was a really long detour! didn't know there was one in Tennessee. Glad you had a good time!
