Question: I will be in Paris with my family over July 14th and I would like to know if things will all be closed and what we will be able to do. Will there be restaurants and stores open? I imagine museums will be closed, but will there be stuff to do anyway?
Answer: I believe that on July 14th most stores and museums will be closed. I could always be wrong, as I have never been in Paris on the 14th. Not to worry you will have lots to do, the Eiffel tower should be open along with Pére Lachaise cemetery, Notre Dame and Sacré Cœur. Remember Paris is a wonderful city to just walk around in.
