Getting to experience Paris in summer is something you will always remember. The French capital is one of those places that's beautiful all year round, but there's just something about summertime here that's so exhilarating. Perhaps it's the Mediterranean heat that will get you feeling some type of way? Or the bright sunshine? In any case, there's a lot you can do to enjoy the summer weather in Paris. You can hang out in the Paris plages, relax under the shade of the trees in the parks, cool off by going on a shopping spree, indulge in some ice cream, and much more.

How To Enjoy The Summer Weather in Paris


Hang Out at The Paris Plages

What's the best way to spend summertime anywhere? Going to the beach, of course. There's nothing quite like hanging out on a sandy shoreline near the sea as the sun shines down on you. It's as if such coasts were built for the season. But then what if you're in Paris in summer? What then? Well, there are still the Paris Plages. Along the banks of both the Seine River and Bassin de la Villette, the French capital sets up man-made beaches for the locals to cool off during summer. They're not as paradisical as the beaches on the French Riviera, but they're still pretty fun and cool nonetheless!

Dive Into A Floating Swimming Pool

Of course, the most common way to stay cool in the summer weather when you're in a big city like Paris is to go swimming. Fortunately, the French capital has its fair share of public pools that you can dive right into when it gets a bit too hot for comfort. Some are indoors while others are out in the open. And then there's Piscine Joséphine Baker, perhaps the most famous among all the swimming pools in Paris. Floating along the banks of the Seine River, this pool adds a tinge of luxury to your swimming.

Relax By The Seine River

Speaking of the Seine River, simply relaxing beside it is a great way to cool off in summer in Paris. Why do you think beaches and lakeside campsites tend to be popular around this time of year? It's because the areas near bodies of water tend to be cool and refreshing. And the beloved banks of the Seine River are no different. Even when it's not summer, the area remains a popular spot among locals and tourists alike. Couples go on dates, families go on picnics, and others just hang out and relax. What's not to love?

Escape to A Big Park

Do you know what other places in Paris have big bodies of water? The city's beautiful parks! The famous green spaces in the French capitals all have their own lakes, ponds, and even massive fountains. Locals go to each and every one of them just to keep cool amidst the summer heat. Jardin du Tuileries, for instance, is pretty famous for its man-made pond. With a big fountain at the center, people would bring chairs just to sit nearby. Bois de Vincennes, on the other hand, offers a lake where you can do all sorts of fun water sports.

Enjoy Some Ice Cream

Don't forget that Paris is also a food capital. One of the best ways to spend time here, be it in summer or any other time of year, is to go on a foodie tour. And when it's hot outside, what should you eat? Ice cream, of course! There are many ice cream shops in Paris, each more delicious than the next. Perfect for any sweet tooth out there, the city's frozen treats are just as delectable as its beloved desserts and pastries. And yes, one scoop or even a popsicle is enough to keep you cool during summer in Paris.

Go on A Day Trip

As beautiful as Paris is, it can still get pretty overwhelming at times. Especially around summertime! Since the French capital has such a huge population, the heat will have you want to leave as fast as you can. So before you go crazy over sweating so much, consider going on a day trip from Paris. There are lots of exciting destinations that you can visit nearby. There's Disneyland Paris, for example, which is perfect for the entire family. The park is so big you might even have to stay longer if you want to get to all the attractions. Giverny, on the other hand, is known for its beautiful nature. It's the kind you have to see to believe!

Have Fun at A Theme Park

And finally, just go all out at a theme park. Or perhaps a summer carnival. There are plenty of them in Paris, after all. As already mentioned, Disneyland Paris is pretty nearby. You can easily forget about the summer heat when you go on rides here. There's also Jardin d'Acclimatation in Bois de Boulogne, the city's own theme park.
