A Wonderful Visit To Bordeaux, France!

Although I have traveled extensively throughout France, I had never been it to Bordeaux! So when Dan and I spent 10 days in France this past summer, we made Bordeaux the highlight of our trip, spending 4 days and nights exploring Bordeaux and the surrounding area.  We had a wonderful time, and found Bordeaux to be a lovely, beautiful and manageable city!

Bordeaux is sizeable city on the Garonne River in Southwestern France.  In additional to being what many would call the wine capital of the world, Bordeaux is a university city that has a very young and very French feel – and in a great way!  Despite its wine fame, Bordeaux is not overrun with tourists and offers a realistic French experience, especially as opposed to many of France’s other big tourists sites.
