Should I head somewhere else...exhaust fumes? I am coming from Southern California. Does anyone have a favorite place with a nice beach (or river) where we can meet people, enjoy good food, ride bikes, look at a castle, perhaps still rustle up a casino? Tall order I know...reading about the French Rivera sounded better than any of you have made it out to be...I just do not want organized tours or crowds of people. I can go anywere but have to come home from Dublin. What is in Dubling?:) I know too many questions...I would really like to see a rock concert or an opera somewhere...Are there fireworks on Bastille day in Nice?
