Strolling around Paris, with or without a poussette (child’s stroller), is absolutely one of the most satisfying activities to do, especially during long summer evenings with light in the sky until nearly 11pm.
Rue d’Alésia is a wonderful and vibrant street in the southern section of the 14th arrondissement. It helps as well that there is a new boulangerie right on the corner that sells amazing pastry as well as offering friendly bar/café service. I highly recommend wandering around the neighborhood when you feel like discovering someplace unfamiliar to you where you will find a brisk business at the nearby fromagerie and two large movie theaters to stop and relax.
