Chill Nice

 

Old French Hollywood glamour (think Brigitte Bardot) and the Cannes Film Festival crowd initially intrigued me to book a short jaunt to the Côte d'Azur. Upon arriving, I remembered how much I suck at relaxing. Even though I had a good time for the first couple of days, I was hard pressed to find non-beach related activities to plan for the remaining time. As you can see, it was absolutely gorgeous and tremendously low key but it also had a strong touristy vibe — these guys are the king of souvenir stores and low quality restaurants. It's a perfect vacation spot for those that love day trips — Monaco, Eze, Antibes, Cannes are all relatively close — to scenic locations and beach jumping. If you're anything like me, 2 days here max is plenty. See below for some recos for those that aren't into sun-worshipping.
