Bordeaux

With a long history of producing regional wines since the Romans brought grapevines here during the first century, so many people consider Bordeaux to be the wine capital of the world.
Bring the kids along to Plage des Bardoulets and Lac de Lougratte. Get a sense of the local culture at St. Andre Cathedral and La Cite du Vin. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Bordeaux: Réserve Ornithologique du Teich (in Le Teich), Zoo de La Palmyre (in La Palmyre-Les Mathes) and Dune du Pilat (in La Teste-de-Buch). Dedicate the 28th (Sat) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's much more to do: make a trip to Place de la Bourse (Place Royale), contemplate the long history of Prieure de Cayac, identify plant and animal life at Maison de la Nature, and have some family-friendly fun at Simfactory.
