Bordeaux

With a good selection of scenic and historic attractions, tourists will discover plenty to see and do in Bordeaux.

This area of Gironde contains roughly 230,000 people.

It lies 5 miles north of Villenave-d'Ornon and 310 miles southwest of Paris, the national capital.

After you've come this far, a visit to the Aquitaine Museum is mandatory. This renowned attraction is bound to impress.

Ensure everyone has a great time by stopping by some of the child-friendly activities in the area. Pack a daypack and head to the Megarama and The Water Mirror. Swimming Stadium Henri Deschamps is also heaps of fun.

The area's wineries sure know how to rouse the senses. Meet the devoted cellar masters, sample the latest vintage and enjoy a fantastic day out at the Chateau Haut Brion or the Maison du Vin de Bordeaux. Once you've caught the wine bug, head for the Chateau Margaux or the Maison du Vin de Bordeaux.

On the lookout for some late-night thrills? Try your poker face out at the Barriere Casino Theatre, a bustling venue where the action never stops.

Horticulturalists and plant lovers will enjoy an enlightening stroll through the Bordeaux Botanical Garden.

For some time outdoors, escape to the area's leafy parks and public gardens. Get lost in a good book or just have a nap on the grass at Jardin Public and Bordelais Park. Park Majolan is also enjoyed by the locals.

For an educational experience, plan a trip to some of the local museums. The Bordeaux Wine and Trade Museum, the National Centre Jean Moulin and the National Museum of Customs should be at the top of your itinerary.

Take the youngsters to study many scientific artifacts, models and displays at the Cap Sciences, the most renowned science center in the area.

The specimens at the Natural History Museum are more than just fun to look at. They also play an important role in helping us understand the world we live in.

Treat your eyes to some art and design at the many exhibition spaces. Spend an inspirational afternoon touring the Contemporary Art Museum, the Musee des Beaux-Arts and the Decoratives Arts Museum.

The Universite Bordeaux I and the Universite Bordeaux II are certainly worth planning a trip to, even if history isn't your forte. When it comes to days of old, there's always more to discover. The Universite Bordeaux III and Pey Berland Tower are two more great places to check out.

Pont de Pierre is a striking structure that has provided a vital crossing for residents from both sides of the water.

The historic structures at Blaye Citadel are highly recommended if you are fascinated by Bordeaux's past conflicts.

Hotel de Ville Palais Rohan is a stately time capsule, offering some of the finest design in the region.

You needn't be royalty to find enjoyment in Chateau de la Dauphine or Chateau Haut Brana. Chateau Lesparre and Cailhau Gate are two more impressive cultural monuments.

The region's spiritual side can be found at Cathedrale St. Andre and St. Michael Basilica. If you'd like to see a couple more religious sites, have a stroll around Grosse Cloche and St. Seurin Basilica.

Bordeaux's most famed sights sometimes overshadow its lesser-known, yet equally fascinating activities. Patinoire Meriadeck and Aquitaine Bridge could be up your alley. Also, think about checking out the Kart System and Spa de Vinothérapie Caudalie if you have the time.
