Hearing the sad news about Notre Dame recently reminded me of when I was in Paris and some of the amazing sights I saw. You can read about some of my favorite attractions here. But what it also inspired was a train of thought about which attractions are really work braving the cold dark night to see (although they all look great during the day as well). And unsurprisingly at the top of the list is…
- Eiffel Tower – Paris
The Eiffel Tower or Tour Eiffel is at its most beautiful at night. Twinkling against the Paris skyline it is both striking and majestic. Recommended vantage point: Place du Trocadéro.
- Times Square – New York
While still amazing during the day, these LED Billboards are most impressive at night. Recommended vantage point: in the middle of Times Square.
- Bellagio Fountain – Las Vegas
When this is lit up it’s pretty spectacular. Recommended vantage point: in front of the fountain.
- Manhattan – New York
Manhattan transforms at night. The hustle, bustle and city grime are masked when this city lights up. Recommended vantage point: Empire State Building, 86th floor.
- Las Vegas Strip – Las Vegas
It’s called the strip for a reason, the city most famed for its use of neon is spectacular and lively at night. Recommended vantage point: there are too many places.
