No summer vacation is complete without a little R&R in the sun. Lucky for me, amid all of my running around and sightseeing, I found some time to kick back in the South of France to work on my tan. I stayed on the local beaches of Cannes for the majority of my time, and then ventured out to the city of Juan-les Pins for my final day in France (most locals recommended it as a must-see). After throwing on the SURFSIDE sandal and hopping on the metro for a quick ride, I arrived at the beach, only to be astounded at the crowds. It was packed, from morning ‘till night! Locals are known for their affinity for water activities, like parachuting and jet skiing, as well as all sorts of activities up and down the shore. I found a spot on the sand, set up an umbrella, loaded up on SPF, and finally settled in to catch some rays. A perfect, peaceful ending to my dream trip to France.
